Unable to cancel out of changes to hot keys.

Making changes to hot keys appears to always take affect, regardless of using the ok button or using the x button to close to window, the changes made in the manage hotkey window will remain.

Re: Unable to cancel out of changes to hot keys.

Yes, it really wasn't designed for a cancel button to maintain all the old settings.  Right now it saves whenever a new hotkey is selected, or the dialog exits.

The programming becomes much more extensive when all 24 hotkeys needs to be preserved in case the player hit escape.  Plus, there would need to be an "apply" button to save the changes up to that point.  Also a "revert changes" button in case the player wants to re-set a hotkey.

How big of a priority is this one?  It is a fair amount of work to make this change.

Re: Unable to cancel out of changes to hot keys.

I think it could be addressed via documentation or text on the window.  Usual standard assumption is that 'x' out of the window  will cancel the changes.  Even the removal of the okay button would reinforce the permanent nature of the changes.
