Duplicate menu Shortcuts

Is there a (quick) way of showing menu shortcut duplicates? So If I add a new menu item I can see whether the shortcut I choose is already in use for a particular platform.

Maybe it could show as a warning during compilation.


In Windows, calling RegisterHotKey for your requested key combination will return False if it is in use by the system or has already been registered by another application.

You can use this to determine if your menu shortcuts are going to cause issues across the Windows system.

I don’t know if there is a similar call for Mac OS/Linux, I’m sure someone with knowledge of the platform will chime in if there is.

I think he means in the IDE when things are being set up - not at runtime

There is no functionality to check if you have used a duplicate shortcut at present
Not sure if there is an existing feature request or not

Yes, in the IDE.
