Keyboard support for Carbide Motion Machine Control Software

Joe_C over on the Shapeoko forums puzzled out some nice commands for this, which we’ve documented on the wiki:

Could we please get one additional command? One to open the Load project windows (and any additional non-standard keys one might need there?) — I’d like to be able to drive my machine from a small Windows tablet using only a keyboard…


EDIT: It would also be nice if there were some indication in the interface of this keyboard functionality — maybe have a preference to show / hide them? Have them fade out after a shorter and shorter timespan after switching to a screen? If nothing else, having full keyboard controls will make the machine more accessible.

For compleatness sake I guess there should be a command to quit the app (not that that would help me much, it always crashes when it exits)
