More than one shortcut per Window Manager action?

Hello there,
    I've been playing around with the keyboard shortcuts that under Window Manager of the xfce4-settings-manager. I was wondering if it was possible to have more than one keyboard shortcut per action?

Thanks in advanced!

Re: More than one shortcut per Window Manager action?

Thanks for your question, I just tried and it is possible, you have to use xfce4-settings-editor.

Look for the value you want to clone: In your case it's under xfce4-keyboard-shortcuts > xfwm4 > custom (or default).

In my test I used the default property "/xfwm4/default/<Alt>space", which has the value "popup_menu_key" (which is a string); then created a new property "<Super>m" (actually "/xfwm4/custom/<Super>m") with that same value ("popup_menu_key"). Now both shortcuts work!

Your newly created property will be in xfce4-keyboard-shortcuts > xfwm4 > custom.

I know that you can do this using the command line and xfconf-query, and maybe there's a better way, but I hope this helps...

I just tried this with tile_left_key and I can't  get it to accept two keys. I'm using xfce 4.12. Does this trick not work any more?
