keypress display utility
« on: April 14, 2021, 09:34:26 am »

This is suggestion or a question....

There could be a "keypress display" available for players that are creating tutorials (or them that do not know what key they just hit), where the keys are displayed on the edge of the DF window. So a player is making a tutorial on military equipment, they click 'm' 'e'  'U' and those three characters are displayed vertically on the left or right edge and as more keys are hit, they shift off the screen, or something like that.

Does something like this already exist within the DF utilities and 3rd party apps?

I don't think anything currently does this, but it would be possible to write a plugin that displays keyboard input on the screen. I suggest you file a feature request at https://github.com/DFHack/dfhack/issues
