Two requests to clarify settings documentation

Post by mikeprichard »

First, for those with gitlab permissions to edit the settings documentation (https://openmw.readthedocs.io/en/latest ... input.html), please consider clarifying the "toggle sneak" and "always run" setting descriptions on that page to note the specific location within the in-game "settings menu" to adjust these controls is the "Scripts" tab. For laypeople/schmos like me, their location in that tab may not be intuitive. (As it applies to camera controls, this clarity is already provided in a "Note" at the top of the "camera settings" docs page at https://openmw.readthedocs.io/en/latest ... amera.html.)

Also, within the in-game settings "Scripts" page itself, there are slightly confusing generic references in the "Always run" setting description to the shift and caps lock keys. As I believe those are keys the user can reassign in the controls menu (and I can confirm in my current setup the caps lock key has no effect on run mechanics), perhaps that description could be revised to be made dynamic to the users' current key settings, or simply reference the intended controls (e.g. the "Auto run key" etc.) rather than the actual default keys on the keyboard. (The "Toggle sneak" description on that same tab does already use the second solution by referring to "the sneak key (bound to Ctrl by default)".) Cheers!
