Description skagon 2023-10-06 23:02:27 UTC
In the Tools–Customise–Keyboard dialog, the available keyboard keys are missing some keys which are readily available in the USB HID keycode spec. Specifically:
F17-F24 (strangely, F13-F16 do exist)
All keypad keys
\| (backslash key)
`~ (tilde)
Non-US #
Plus a number of other keys, such as International 1-9, all of which are specified in [https://www.usb.org/sites/default/files/hut1_4.pdf], in the Keyboard page.

I would suggest that the missing keys be added in the list. Moreover, an overhaul of the shortcut selection page is advised, so that keys and modifier combinations are easier to handle, rather than one very long list of "all" possible combinations.

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Open Tools – Customise…
2.Go to Keyboard tab

Actual Results:
Keys missing from shortcut key list.

Expected Results:
All keyboard keys present, perhaps even a "press combination" field to detect any key combination.

Reproducible: Always

User Profile Reset: No
