I recently upgraded my 10 year old video adapter, and decided to have a go at Skyrim again - this time the Special Edition. All was nice until I noticed a problem - I like to remap a few of the keys because... I'm just used to that. For example, I use F for holstering/unholstering weapons; and I use E for shouting.
The problem is in the inventory/loot screen - not only does it use some totally unrelated keys, the on-screen keyboard hints don't even reflect the proper keys.
For example, the key to favorite items is the same as the one for "Toggle First/Third person view". It defaults to F, but I've remapped it to T. However, the inventory screen still shows F as the shortcut for favoriting things - even though I actually need to press T instead, and pressing F drops the item.
This is annoying as hell. The best thing would be if I could use a separate keymapping for the inventory screen, because I'm used to the defaults being used there, however, I'd also settle for it simply showing the right keys - at least it would remind me what to press.
Unfortunately I haven't been able to find a mod that would to that. I don't know if I simply haven't tried the right keywords in Google, or if such a mod is impossible. Does anyone know anything about this?
I know I'm not the first one with this problem - forum topics about it are plenty, but none of them actually offer a fix - just explain the problem to confused players who find themselves unable to work with their inventories.
