Color Replacer Hotkey + Directional Keys Move

1. The Color Replacer doesn't seem to have a hotkey and while clicking on the Color Replacer icon once in a while isn't too bad, a hotkey for it would be good. Maybe replace with one of D / P / B.

2. Instead of CMD + Drag to move, maybe move with the directional keys.

I'm new to Pyxel Edit and the forums so please forgive me in case of an oversight :)

    Hi Sundrop

    You can bind the color replacer tool to a hotkey using the config and actions described in readme.txt found here 
    Windows: C:\Users\[username]\AppData\Roaming\PyxelEdit or similar.
    You can enter %appdata% as the path in windows explorer to find the Roaming folder quickly.
    Mac: /Users/[username]/Library/Application Support/PyxelEdit or similar.

    For example, if you would like to select the replace color tool, you would open your 'keybindings.json' file and make it look like this. 

    [
      {
        "keyString": "D",
        "action": "color_replace_tool_action",
        "shiftKey": false
      } ]

    If you want to add more keybindings, add a ',' after the closing bracket and make a new entry, eg.

    [
      {
        "keyString": "D",
        "action": "color_replace_tool_action",
        "shiftKey": false
      },   {
        "keyString": "A",
        "action": "color_replace_tool_action",
        "shiftKey": false
      } ]

    I couldn't find "PyxelEdit" in "Application Support", so I tried modifying "Applications/PyxelEdit0.4.4/Contents/Resources/Settings/keybindings.json" and restarting the application a few times. Didn't seem to work.

    I can live with this though. :) Thank you for spending the time to address this issue!
    The amount of work this application helps with more than makes up for it's little quirks!

    You couldn't find the folder?

    By default the Library folder is hidden, so you have to either enter the path via terminal, eg. typing "open ~/Library" or open a finder window, then click on the "Go" tab in the top bar, hold "super" down on your keyboard and the folder should reveal itself ;)

    The folder should exist, as it's at that location you'll also find file backups, config file etc.
