10.6: One way to create a mouse-free launcher assistant
Authored by: frank_martin on Apr 28, '10 11:20:50PM

In Dragthing 5.9.5, mouseless navigation works IF Dragthing is frontmost while a dock is displayed:

Set a hotkey to maximise a dock. (Dragthing > *Dock preferences* > Hotkey).

Set the SAME HOTKEY to bring Dragthing to the front. (Dragthing > *Preferences* > Hotkeys, check "Use Hotkeys to Control Dragthing", then set the hotkey for "Bring Dragthing to the front".)

After bringing Dragthing to the front and maximising a dock with the hotkey:

-navigate tabs/layers with command-left/right arrow keys
-navigate item selection with the arrow keys
-a selected item is opened by typing the Return key; while the Enter key opens Dragthing's "Options" dialog for that item.
