TOPIC: Keymap parsing priority
Keymap parsing priority 16 Years, 6 Months ago  
AT 4.61

I noticed that if I have two keymap definitions for the same key (and same key state, like shifted), the first one in the file is used and the second one is ignored. I was surprised at this as I would have thought the second one would have overwritten the first.

The reason I was doing it this way is because I wanted to clearly indicate the modifications I'd made to a keymap by having all the changes at the end, instead of having to need to comment out the lines at the beginning. This way I would only need to ADD lines where I wanted to overwrite the default already present in the keymap file.

This is a very minor problem and I can certainly live with it, but I thought it was odd behaviour on the part of AT to ignore further definitions of the same key.
