Title say it all. Can we have bindable keys for all energy setups (Attack, Defense, Speed, Balanced)? Icons are too small to click on them in battle rush. For strategic fights I often switch my config at least twice or more times.

So pretty please, give us bindable key action to them.

/bind <key> genbuttonclick powerlevel_preset_0
/bind <key> genbuttonclick powerlevel_preset_1
/bind <key> genbuttonclick powerlevel_preset_2
/bind <key> genbuttonclick powerlevel_preset_3

BAM!

Thanks for pro answer. I should write it in chat, I guess? Will be these key binds saved for next session or I must write it always when I log in?

They persist for the Character but not account wide.
Use /bind_save_file <filename.txt> in chat [While in space] to save the Space keybinds so you can /bind_load_file <filename.txt> [while in space] to quickly set the bindings on other characters. The Space and Ground bindings are 2 distinct keybind profiles, this trick works for Ground bindings as well as Space.

Also I believe they added the hotkey assignments to Keybind section of Options, they are thrown in with other commands and don't stand out - defaults are:

<delete> Balance Shields
<Right Arrow> Push to Starboard/Right Shield
<Left Arrow> Push to Port/Left Shield
<Up Arrow> Push to Fore/Forward Shield
<Down Arrow> Push to Aft/Rear Shield

I'm experimenting with this. It worjks, but now I need figure out how to use CTRL, SHIFT and ALT mods and if there is possible to use separate Left and Right modifiers like LCTRL, RCTRL etc.

I guess it is Shift+<key> and is not possible to define RightShift+<key>. Am I right in my presumptions?

Edit: Now tested. Yes it is that way Control+<key>, Shift+<key>,Alt+<key>. Is not possible to use left or right variant.

When I made the file, I got the following txt file below, those last 3 lines I added my self. Is this correct for binding the ship power or do I have to do something else? Also, do I have to manually load this in every time?

Sorry, Was probably tired and misread. Hope the info was at least partially helpful.

I know the Input is pretty horrible for bind conflicts. However, I have declared:

Lshift
Rshift


and had them show in binding - not sure if they actually work but they do show in the bind file. Change a bind in game while pressing the desired 'Modifier' key and click "Just this" button and it'll stick - then save-file , open up that file and see the TextLabel for that key - like I said, not sure if they'll actually work though alone or used as part of a combo.
