Define Keyboard Shortcut Dialog


跳转到: 导航, 搜索


This dialog allows you to add or edit a keyboard shortcut.

Select the command for which a shortcut is to be added from the drop-down list. Command names prefixed with an "M" are menu commands, names prefixed with a "T" are toolbar commands, and names prefixed with a "G" are "general" commands - ie commands which have no menu or toolbar equivalent, and which are therefore only available via a keyboard shortcut.

The Shortcut button allows you to enter the key sequence to be used as the shortcut; click the button to display the Keypress Entry Dialog, then press the keys to be used as the shortcut. You can use either a key on its own, or in combination with any or all of the Ctrl, Alt, or Shift keys. The text to the right of the Shortcut button displays the name of the keys entered.

When the information has been entered correctly, click the OK button to enter the shortcut into the current list of keyboard shortcuts.


The names of the keys shown as the shortcut are based on a US keyboard layout. If you are using a different national language keyboard layout, you may see a different name for the key than the symbol marked on your keyboard. Although the name may be shown incorrectly, the keyboard shortcut will be "recorded" correctly, and the selected function will be activated when you press the key sequence you used as the shortcut.

For example, on a British keyboard, if you press the key marked "#" on the keyboard, the keyboard shortcut will be displayed as a single quote character - '. Although the name of the key is shown incorrectly, the selected function will be activated when you press the "#" key.

You can define any key sequence that you wish as a keyboard shortcut, but we recommend that you avoid those which are used as standard "shortcuts" by Windows itself. For example by default, pressing "Alt+Space" will make the application's "System Menu" drop down. You can define "Alt+Space" to be a keyboard shortcut if you wish, but by doing so you'll be "overriding" the default action of this key sequence which Windows normally uses. It's entirely up to you to decide whether or not you wish to do this.
