Description Nate Graham 2018-02-01 22:53:57 UTC
The way I'm envisioning this working is that the text for each item would also show the global keyboard shortcut used to invoke it, just like a regular menu. This way, Spectacle users would learn the global shortcuts over time, becoming much more productive.

Display shortcuts in capture mode combobox

Shows the global shortcuts in the capture mode ComboBox. These are
the shortcuts that would perform a screenshot in that capture mode
directly even if Spectacle wasn't currently open.

The purpose of this commit is to teach users these shortcuts,
similar to how a QMenu does it, to boost users' speed and
productivity long term.
