I noticed I use left sided keys frequently and did some customized but one remains. 1. Remove Delete function from X key because pressed accidentally many times. 2. And I want to assign 'Canceling Circle Select mode' by press X key instead of distanced ESC key.

I done step.1 but couldn't find how to do step.2, remap X key as cancel circle select mode. Initially I remapped by AutoHotKey but soon I noticed I couldn't type X character(when renaming/creating object &file)...

Thanks in advance.

    $\begingroup$ You know you can exit circle select using the (even less distanced) right mouse button? $\endgroup$

I believe you can't change the Escape keybinding, which is also used by many other operators.

But there are other (quicker) methods to exit circle selection.

From the manual:

To cancel the selection use RMB RMB or key Esc or ⏎ Enter.

  • Press the RMB RMB.
  • If you're right-handed, awkwardly swivel your right thumb onto Numpad Enter.
  • If you have a programmable mouse, assign any of its buttons to ⏎ Enter or Escape, this would be a useful keybind anyway which is not wasted.
