you are missing something,
nigtman's configuration, even well known not complete, become most popular and common after ALL well known pe2/3 projects who followed, that is the reason we left it as it is for Capi pe2/3 shortcut creation, so Capi can be updated easly with any project
you are missing another thing,
you do not need to break compatibility for a new shortcut mechanism,
Capi already improved looong time ago.
Currently on Gena, shortcuts NOT created with Capi, Capi only process its part and pass to a shortcut script,
you can make a shortcut script the way you prefer (via the approriate shortcuts.exe whatsoever, or even not using any via direct approach, up to you), and add to any project, changing permanent settings,
Checking Gena in practice carelfully** will summerize you all story
ps: Gena's ShortcutsCentro script have hidden checkbox "Create Text (for tests)" which will be less complicated to follow.
ps: replaying: I do not say work on ShortcutsCentro, I say arrange your own shortcut script along with your shortcutter.exe whatsoever the way you like, full free.
And I also miss something,
Add_Shortcut,Type,StartMenuFolder,(path\)FileName,Title,Work Folder,Parameters,(path\)IconFile#$cIconIndex,StartMode=(1,2,3),ToolTipText(only Gena/LiveXP)
should have been
Add_Shortcut,Type,StartMenuFolder,(path\)FileName,Title,Work Folder,Parameters,(path\)IconFile#$cIconIndex,StartMode=(1,2,3)#$cHotKey,ToolTipText(only Gena/LiveXP)
by now, to complete all possible parameters,
probably forgotten during development (since it was easy to add and posponed but now required since someone (you) is interested.....).. will be added soon
