Editor Window

Editor windows in Keyman Developer supports standard Windows editing keystrokes. Many file formats, including .kmn, .kps, .xml, .html, .js and .json, support syntax highlighting. The text editor in Keyman uses the Monaco component from Visual Studio Code, so all the functionality available in that editor is also available here.

Special Functionality

Aside from standard Windows keys, the following keystrokes are defined for the editor:

Keystroke Action
Ctrl + Shift + M Toggle Message Window visibility
Ctrl + Shift + C Open Character Map
Ctrl + Shift + I Toggle Character Identifier visibility
Ctrl + F Find text
Ctrl + H Replace text
Ctrl + Shift + U Convert the selection to/from characters to code values
