Customize/disable keyboard shortcuts

Hi,
I have a strong preference to working with the keyboard instead of the mouse.
Today I was working on a script to label a sequence of images (mark position and
scale of a moving object). The default keyboard shortcuts are getting in my way,
many keys are already used and moreover they are spread all over the keyboard.
Looking at the doc, I could't find an easy way to customize or completely
disable them. If someone can suggest a (not too coonvoluted) solution, I'd love
to hear it.

Cheers,

Jorge

Hi Jorge, Hello list,

unfortunately I cannot help you, but I understand your problem and would like
to know about a solution, too. I encountered this problem in April/may 2007
(http://old.nabble.com/skip-mpl-axes-interaction-during-key_press_event’s-td10221576.html)
because of the 'l’ogarthmic scaling, 'g’ridding etc., but in the meanwhile
the number of keyboard-shortcuts has even increased. Therefore in my opinion
it is important to support disabling of these keyboard-shortcuts, because
otherwise there is not much space left for individual (meaningful) shortcuts.

Furthermore I think this can also useful for buttons and sliders from
matplotlib.widgets, because one don't want to scale or set grid upon these
widgets, isn't it?

What do other users think about that?

Thanks in advance for any comments or even solutions.

Kind regards,
Matthias
