Remap hot keys Select (V) and Draw (P)

Wondering if there’s an easy way to assign different keys for the Select and Draw tool. I want to assign (Q) for Select and (W) for Draw since that’s closer to where my left hand is resting most of the time.

Keyboard Shortcuts from System Preferences only accept traditional shortcuts for existing menu items.

Yes there is. See the last couple of pages of the handbook appendix.

Or try the mekkablue scripts. In the App subfolder there is a Tool shortcut script, don’t remember the name (and not on my Mac) now.

Thank you!

To anyone from the future, type this in Terminal:

defaults write com.GeorgSeifert.Glyphs2 SelectTool.Hotkey "q"
defaults write com.GeorgSeifert.Glyphs2 DrawTool.Hotkey "w"

And check the handbook.

Or type this in the macro panel:

Glyphs.defaults["SelectTool.Hotkey"] = "q"
Glyphs.defaults["DrawTool.Hotkey "] = "w"

it does the same thing as the terminal command.
