Commands for "command shortcuts" don't stay in settings file


Description Andrew Conkling 2004-10-04 18:54:58 CEST
I've created a new scheme for my own keyboard shortcuts in the WM preferences. 
I've added a few command shortcuts (a desktop-switching command for
CTRL+ALT+Left and +Right, for example), but while the shortcuts stay when I
close/reopen the window, the commands do not.  The same goes for

However (and here's the funny part), the shortcuts continue to work.  :-)

i don't fully understand, can you post a screenshot or explain the way step by
step to reproduce it?

1. Open WM Preferences.
2. Assign command "transset" to Alt+F3, in the fourth keyboard shortcut slot. 
(The first three are already taken.)
3. Close preferences.  Notice that the shortcut doesn't apply immediately.  File
bug 342: http://bugzilla.xfce.org/show_bug.cgi?id=342
4. Restart Xfce.
5. Reopen WM Preferences.
6. The keyboard shortcut is still there, but the space where I typed the command
is blank.

Lastly, on a somewhat related note, if I open one of the first three shortcuts
(whose commands show up) to edit its command, it opens to a blank text box; it
seems that it should instead open to the command that's already there (in case
one wants to edit it etc.).

Does this help?
