I don't think there is a document for the default keymaps, and there
has been some talk about redoing default keybindings, because they are
so hidden and varies from backend to backend.
In the meantime, I would suggest checking out the "event handeling"
section of the examples page. You can have a function that you attach
to the "key_press_event", which takes an "event" object as an
argument. That event object has the key that was pressed. You can
then have an if...elif...else statement for all the keys and actions,
or have a dictionary of key-action pairs.
Hope that helps!
That's pretty cool! However, I have to do it for every figure I create,
there doesn't seem to be a way to tell matplotlib : "whenever a figure
is created, associate this handler to this event".
I think I'll just wait for the keybinding stuff to get refactored, which
would definitely be a good idea (I only found out via very indirect
means, and had to change backend to get them working). It seems
worthwhile to have a "q" default binding to exit the plot.
