I use a few AHK scripts and other software like: WinSplit Revolution (move a window to a specific position on your screen),&  Toggle Hidden that have hot keys assigned. I can never remember all that are active, since I always have different programs running for  different tasks.

Would be nice to pop up a keyboard graphic that shows the currently active hot keys and the programs that control them.

good idea. there have been some keyboard cheat-sheet ideas floating about the thread but none came of it. maybe it's time the idea gets a boost.

Great.

(This could also be an overall AHK HotKey cheat-sheet)

feature request:

Search for currently running WinKey+, Ctrl+, Alt+, and any combos HotKeys
Selectable Keyboards for different running apps. (Word, Firefox, AHK's, ....)
Hover over key tooltip for further comments
Add HotKey information  manually
Add icons for HotKey (see attached iage)
Sizable, dockable
Transparency fade-in/out
Task Bar Button


I was looking at qliner. Has a nice keyboard with ability to change icons, but I cannot seem to just add an informational button or icon, and it seems to be it's own scripting language. (see image)
