The shortcut for document, collection or database creation (c) conflicts with the OS's copy (which is very natural to use in Genghis too). Could we find another shortcut that would not conflict with anything major?

That would be great!

But it shouldn't be conflicting with cmd+c or ctrl+c... Are you seeing otherwise?

Yup, it conflicts with cmd+c on my Mac at least. Which modifier key is it supposed to hook into?

Just c (no modifier). What browser (and version) and OS version are you using?

Latest Chrome (it's been doing that ever since I started using Genghis, that's why I was thinking it was intentional), OS X Lion.

You know what, it might be because of the way I press cmd+c (I might press both then release cmd a few ms before c...). So it's probably a bug with my typing. Sorry for the false alert.

Does pressing cmd+c that way reliably copy elsewhere? It's possible that I could swap out my hotkeys library for one that handles keydown/keyup for modifier keys. Right now I think it's just "modifier is pressed when key is released", but if that's not how hotkeys work system wide, I'm open to finding a new hotkeys library :)

If I understand correctly, you're doing:

KeyDown Cmd
KeyDown c
KeyUp   Cmd
KeyUp   c

and I'm doing:

KeyDown Cmd
KeyDown c
KeyUp   c
KeyUp   Cmd

Is that right?

I'd need a slo-mo camera to figure out what exactly I am doing, but yes, you're right.

Yes, I've never had a reliability issue with my copy-pasting :) Does your first schema not work on your setup (to copy)?

I just spent a few minutes trying to reprogram my brain to do it your (probably the more frequent) way but I'm having a pretty hard time.

I can investigate hotkeys library if you'd like.

Hokay. Hotkey handling is improved across the board in b66e426 ... I've tested it with your weird sequence, and it seems to perform as expected :)

That's available in the dev branch. Mind checking it out and making sure it works for you?

Sweet!

The new version should be released today. I'm just tidying up a few loose ends.
