Keystroke Tester

This is invaluable as a time saver when needing to work with the various keystroke triggers.

The tester opens in a card window and will respond to your keystrokes or modifier keys pressed, providing you with real time feedback:

The keystroke tester will likely feature in a future elemental release as an Add-on, but if anyone would like to build this as an Add-on sooner feel free to do so and let us know in the comments here.
