Mnemonic Shortcuts for Vivaldi (version 1.0 not in Beta, performs flawlessly)



  • This is a solution for Mnemonic Shortcuts for Vivaldi. You forget about using normal shortcuts like Ctrl + Alt + F6. Instead you use a 2 letter mnemonic shortcuts.

    As @pesala said : “This opens up the options for assigning commands that are quick to execute without pressing modifier keys and easy to remember”.

    This version 1.0 performs flawlessly without the problem in Beta, related to the Address, Search, Find (page and settings), input boxes fields and in the editor of forums.

    Meanwhile you are typing, you have to maintain the cursor within those fields, so stay like a IBeam and not take the mouse out to the page (because it will not be a IBeam). This way it will not trigger the shortcuts in those fields.

    The rules are:
    1.- One Word: the first and the last letter : Bookmarks : BS
    2.- Two words: the first letters of the two words: Tile Vertically : TV
    3.- Three or more words : the first letters of the two words most representative: Developer Tools Console : DC

    Various (replace the points mentioned in Beta):
    1.- For 7 mnemonic words I had to brake the rules, because they repeat in another shortcut.
    2.- I found that Alt + Home simulate browser restart so I add it to the list.
    3.- You have to delete A, W, D and S spatial navigation shortcuts.
    4.- I add “open Vivaldi Forum” : VF, “open Vivaldi Blog” : VB, “open Vivaldi snapsHots”: VH and “open Vivaldi Unread topics”: VU
    5.- The Mnemonic Shortcuts apply when Vivaldi is in front of others Windows and the cursor is not a IBeam.
    6.- You have to maintain the Caps Lock off, because if not Ctrl + n become Ctrl + Shift + n (I am testing a by-pass)

    The following list include about 75 default shortcuts that appears in settings when you click “Restore default keys”, but there are about 80 commands more without default shortcuts, that I could add in a next version.

    This is the exe file (the zip also contains the source code). You have to make a shortcut and put it in the Start folder of Windows:

    https://drive.google.com/file/d/1A9LFVv3Ea8gd_hmBGK39nS5i8sH74_-M/view?usp=sharing

    I understand that some people could be afraid of the exe file. In this case maybe a gentle Senior user or a Moderator could check and upload it.

    Give it a try, it will be a so different, easier and much better way of manage Vivaldi. Believe me, after a day of use you will not be able to come back.

    Finally, I have to thank @pesala for give the idea in the first place.

    Enjoy
