Bug Description

A hotkey is usually split into modifiers (Ctrl, Alt, ...) and a key (A-Z,...) (if not so such configured hotkey will be ignored for this new feature).

So the hotkey is pressed. The modifiers have to stay pressed (Ctrl+Alt as default). In the now shown indicator menu an item can be selected by pressing the key (V as default).

When the modifiers are now released the item will be automatically selected and pasted and the indicator closed.

See Blueprint key-combination for more details.

A method of gtk 3 is needed to implement this successfully. However, in natty the ambiance theme is not available for gtk 3. Diodon looks just ugly therefore ;). So we need to wait for Oneiric to have this fixed.

Furthermore some changes in the vala vapi have been needed. Such are now released in vala version 0.13. However this version is currently not even available for Oneiric.

Hence, this issue must be postponed. Removing milestone.

The new key combination to select an item is implemented in trunk.

After using it a couple of times I've already started to love it ;).

Of course the old fashion way still maintains working.

Soon available in daily ppa for testing.
