Emulator Issues #4607
"Enable hotkeys" option ambiguous as to which keys do what
What's the problem?
Check this out:
Okay, so the keys are 3, 4, 5, 6, and 7, and they toggle "certain options," Which options? Hotkeys should never be ambiguous, I don't know if I want to use this or not since it's never stated anywhere what they do.
Furthermore, aren't the number keys already used for state saving/loading? Key conflicts are an even bigger problem.
Dolphin version with the problem (as it appears in the title bar, Ex.: "R
4779" or "R 6403M"):
Well my gripe is with r7599 but it's probably been around since the option was implemented.
Operating system and version: Windows XP
32-bit or 64-bit: x86
Game ID (as it appears in game properties, Ex.: "GZ2P01" or "RSBE01"):
Was the ISO a plain dump from disc, compressed and/or scrubbed?
Please provide any additional information below.

The number keys are not used for state saving and loading. The F1-F8 keys are used for that. That is unless you have changed the hotkeys for state saving and loading.
That option is quite old, and those keys are hard coded in. They are for changing the internal resolution, aspect ratio, Copy EFB, Fog, and Material Lighting settings on the fly while the emulator is running.
That tooltip needs to be written better. Unfortunately, it will probably have to wait until after the release due to the string freeze.
