Validate Hotkeys WHILE asigning them (BEFORE program restart)

description

When assigning the hotkeys, it would be VERY useful if the combinations are checked before restarting the program, in the dialog box. So you don't have to restart the program many times until you find a correct combination. Also, the popup that shows the conflict is not very useful, as you can easuly forget some combinations if there are too many conflicts.
Great program, thanks!

Thanks for the suggestion. Hopefully I'll get around to this for the next release.

Just pointing out that this is biting me right now. I can't set any of the hotkeys because:
  1. The options menu won't even load unless I have Hotkeys enabled. If I uncheck the Hotkeys menu item on the tray icon and then try to enter Options, nothing happens.
  2. It looks like Finestra is trying to re-register hotkeys even if they're already registered to Finestra. I set Fullscreen Overview/Mouse Mini-preview/Window Menu/Show All to WCSA+F21/WCSA+F22/WCSA+F23/WCSA+F24, and it was the first time I successfully got Finestra to save hotkey settings. I tried to change one of these to F20, and then I got the registration errors. The hotkey preference appears to have saved though.
  3. Turning off one or more of the hotkeys doesn't seem to prevent Finestra from trying to register the key combo for that function. I want to turn off Fullscreen Overview/Mouse Mini-preview/Window Menu/Show All, but I still get key combo registration errors relevant to those settings when I hit OK, and when I reload the Options menu, all the options are checked.
