Is it possible to assign a key command to toggle between seeing or hiding signposts?
To hide and “restore” ALL the visible signposts with ONE key shortcut would be very handy, indeed.
No, it is not currently possible.
Meanwhile a work around with a lua script. The script can easily be extended for other signposts.
local app=DoApp.DoApp() app:doCommand([[View.SetSignpostFlagTypeShown?SignpostFlagType=kFrameBreak]]) app:doCommand([[View.SetSignpostFlagTypeShown?SignpostFlagType=kSystemBreak]]) app:doCommand([[View.SetSignpostFlagTypeShown?SignpostFlagType=kBarDivisionChange]])
The disadvantage is that you have to execute the script the first time manually, for furter executes there is a key command available.
I seriously think this is needed. So hopefully one day… Thank you so much.
It would save much time to have a key command to turn on and off signposts. Can this be done with a Macro? I tried the Script/record macro…and it works to “run last script,” but can I assign a key command to that macro and then record more? (I need 4: frame break on, off, system break on, off).
Rather than trying to use one of Dorico’s built-in macros for this, it might be worth considering the use of a third-party macro recording program. On Mac I think the favoured choice these days is Keyboard Maestro, and on Windows, it’s AutoHotKey.
