Subject: Re: My take on a redefined key mapping in Rockbox
From: Eric Linenberg (elinenbe_at_umich.edu)
Date: 2003-04-23


My only complaint is I use the F2 screen MUCH more often then I use the
pitch screen. I wonder what others think about this?

DS> GOALS
DS> =====
DS> - as much as possible with one hand
DS> - less keys (and combos) to remember
DS> - save ON + [key] combos for customizable "macros"
DS> - generic: use f1 to reach menu and f3 for context-sensitive menus/stuff

DS> FILE BROWSER
DS> ============
DS> UP/DOWN - upwards/downwards
DS> LEFT - go one dir level back
DS> RIGHT - go down one dir level
DS> PLAY - play file (if an mp3 then go WPS)
DS> F1 - goto MENU
DS> F2 -
DS> F3 - context-sensive file/dir MENU (formerly known as ON+PLAY)
DS> ON - go to WPS (if there's a song playing)
DS> ON+UP - page up
DS> ON+DOWN - page down
DS> OFF

DS> WPS
DS> ===
DS> UP/DOWN - increase/decrease volume
DS> LEFT - prev/rew
DS> RIGHT - next/ffw
DS> PLAY - pause/play

DS> F2 - pitch screen
DS> F3 - context-sensive WPS menu (CSWM):

DS> OFF

DS> (To unlock the keylock => F3 = > PLAY on the first option in the list, which
DS> then will be the only thing you can do it that menu. When the keylock is
DS> enabled, the menu will timeout after N seconds without PLAY being pressed.)
