Hi think that most vMix users use vMix as standalone program. They don't bother about anything else so they have whole keyboard for use. I have this situation: Iam moderator in semi-political sessions in our district. I mainly use other program let's call it "HLAS" (controlling microphones, voting and some text writing) And i don't have almost no time to start votting in HLAS, switch to vMix fade-in votting screen, switch to HLAS finish voting, switch to vMix fade-in static camera, switch back to HLAS and start there another topic.

so a use AUTO HOT KEY (a ton of help on internet and manual is big bible) on my programable keys on keyboard. Ill show you some simple code:

==============
!Q::
WinActivate ,vMix - 22.0.0.48 x64
Send {Numpad5}
WinActivate ,HLAS - ahk_class TMainForm
Return
==============

!=ALT Q=Q
make vMix window active and type "5" <-this is in vMix shortcut for NumPad5
then make window HLAS active
and done

so whenever i type ALT+Q all that staf above happens I know this is not what you asked for but you can pretty much easly program your special keys to shortucs like this one above. Unfortunately in vMix is it still only one character in this case NumPad5. As i say before i need mainly control another program where is requirement to write some text from time to time and i don't have to be worry that i start typing something and realize a have done some super mess in vMix program since it is not active window.


you can also Send {F20}, and in vMix bind shortcut for F20 - since you probably don't have F20 on your keyboard it will not bother you and still works.

+1 i use shortcuts (numeric keypad 0-9) to change datasources. more precisely - DataSourceSelectRow. works fine until you have 11+ rows. modifiers ALT, SHIFT, CTRL would give me 40 rows. That would be totally supergreat.

This seems like a lot of work when you could buy something like this https://www.amazon.com/midiplus-Smartpad-USB-MIDI-Controller/dp/B00WU6FDNG And would not have to have vMix in focus and have a more keys for you to work with.

My 2 cents,
Steve

BTW I do support Modifier keys as a feature though :-)
