Bug Description

Missing shortcut for channel 2 Tap button in "Late Night" skin.

Shortcuts are not skin specific.
They are defined application wide
Default shortcut for BPM tap Channel1 = Q / Channel 2=U

What you see might be the following:
The existing and working shortcut for channel 2 is not shown on the skins`s tooltips, no matter what skin.
Interestingly if you change the shortcuts for Channel 1 and 2 in Standard.kbd.cfg and re-launch Mixxx, the shortcut for Channel 1 in missing while its shown for Channel 2 now.

So in summary, it may be an error with the underlaying code and not with the skins

This still happens with trunk.
Some shortcuts simply do not appear in the tooltips, but i can`t see a pattern .

summary: - Mixxx 1.9.0 missing shortcut
+ Some shortcuts defined in Standard.kbd.cfg missing in tooltips

the attached patch against lp:mixxx #2969.
It introduces the shortcut translation as well.

Ops, I have just noticed that I have used a Qt 4.7 function.

Thanks for the patch.
It worked pretty well with latest lp:mixxx/1.10 on MacOSX 10.6.8.

Interestingly some of the shortcuts available in Standard.kbd.cfg are still not displayed in the tooltips (at least on MacOS). I tried to re-assign the shortcuts with no result.

Keys with display issues:

beatloop_4_toggle ( you can substitute the 4 with any of the available numbers from 0.0625-64 with no result)

Personally i like that the key sequence is translated in a platform specific string.
It might be confusing to users on Windows cause QKeySequence::NativeText returns "Meta" key instead of "Windows" key . Can´t test on Windows if QT bug is still present:

Thanks, now the shortcuts are perfectly displayed on all controls.

There are now suffixes added to some of the shortcuts - not sure if we should keep them or leave it simply to the tooltips explanatory text. Some of the suffixes are misleading like "up/up_small" and "down/down_small" when a fader moves horizontally.

Since you are already casting to WSliderComposed, you could just add a method isHorizontal() to WSliderComposed and if horizontal, use left/right instead of up/down. Otherwise the patch looks good to me and feel free to commit it.
