Proposal
Allow a Keymap Option Command for Toggle between Run/Walk. Currently the game only allows a Momentary Run/Walk Toggle, forcing the user to hold down the key to allow Walking.
Justification
Having to hold down the button to walk is an Accessibility issue and makes it harder for some people to play the game.
Motivation
Allowing the user to hit the button once will allow them to switch between walk and run and not have to hold it down. Some people have a hard time (because of limited movement with the hands/fingers) with using the WASD keys to move and holding a button down to walk. Likewise holding the button down and using the mouse can also be problematic.
Allow a Keymap Option Command for Toggle Run/Walk. Currently the game only allows a Momentary Run/Walk Toggle forcing the user to hold down the key to allow Walking. This can be a problem with people with limited mobility (or pain) in the hands/fingers who have a hard time hitting the mapped button and using either the WASD keys or using the mouse to move. This is an Accessibility issue with the game.

I was contacted by an affected player who was seeking help on this matter.

Yes, there is a check box in the options to walk or run by default, but you have to open the options/controls tab to get to it. Not very convenient to do on the fly.
