I find the Hotkeys menu is pretty overwhelming and think it needs a re-vamp to help its usability. The large font size leads to very little info showing per screen list, relatively speaking. And there are several hotkey groups to weed through. A smaller font size would be awesome!
Adding options for small, medium, and large font would be helpful. If I had my way, I’d just want small font size, of course; but I know some want/need larger than me. Thus, choices.
Additionally, it could use a Search field:
- If you search for, “villager”, for example, it should display all hotkeys associated with villagers. And with a smaller font, you’d have enough room to show the hotkey associated and also what hotkey group each search result belongs to.
A reverse-lookup Search capability would be nice, so if you search for “A” it would show things that are assigned to “A”, but also CTRL+A, SHIFT+A, etc. since those have “A” in them
A filter to show what keys are not assigned would be a nice-to-have, but not as critical. I’ve seem some programs do this and it can be very helpful. Since AoE has so many hotkeys, such a filter could come in handy to know what hotkeys aren’t already bound to something
Currently looks like this. With a smaller font size, you could probably have a list showing twice the amount of hotkeys at once as this:
