Synopsis: Boolean Preferences cannot be edited via the keyboard

Under Tools | Preferences, I can edit preferences by hitting the Enter key and then typing.

EiffelStudio 6.0 has introduced check boxes for Boolean preferences, which is a good improvement. Hopefully we'll see the same improvement in the Project Settings window.

Unfortunately, these check boxes cannot be edited via the keyboard. I would expect to be able to toggle the check box simply by hitting the space bar.

Now you can toggle the boolean value using the key "space".
This is available from revision rev#66474 and thus will be available in next release.
About using this checkable item for the configuration tool, we should update it, we'll keep you informed when this is done.
