digitalmars.D.ide - Keyboard shortcuts to build

When using the "external tool" way to build my project, i see only one
way to have a shortcut to start the build. Binding the "run last
launched external tool" to a key.

It would be nice to have a fixed key combination to start a fixed build.
Also it is important for me to have several different build targets
available in the same project.

Have i overseen the obvious way of doing this?

Before answering, remember Descent has forums: http://www.dsource.org/forums/viewforum.php?f=107 I don't know if this is the right place to ask all questions about Descent. Maybe it is? :) I think the "external tool" thing is pretty limited, I don't know if you can assign shortcuts to it, have many build targets, etc. Do you need to compile all the build targets at the same time, or one at a time is enough?

Not at the same time. There may be subprojects in a single source tree. Unfortunately the build take some time (10 sec), so i can't (don't want) to run them all in sequence, especially if i am not working on the other subprojects.

I prefer this newsgroup. All D related groups can be checked for new posting in one run.
