Configuring keyboard shortcuts

Configuration follows the same pattern for all applications.

To assist users, configured shortcuts are also displayed in item tooltips.

Custom Shortcut Values

The value of the shortcut parameter key [Shortcut name] at |...|[productname]|Shortcuts|, can take the following values:

a-z
0-9
A-Z

any standalone letter (without 'alt+', 'ctrl+', 'shift+' prefixes)

Be aware that A-Z means Shift+a-z and the same for e.g. äöü

shift+[left or up or down or right arrow or delete or space]

(warning) shift+<key> is ONLY supported for left or up or down or right or delete or space. Use the resulting character for the other characters in combination with shift. e.g. shift+a is A

Otherwise use the shift+<keycode> notation at the next line.

shift+<keycode>

We introduced the shift+<X> notation for being able to use the shift by relying on keycodes for internationalization.

e.g. shift+3 becomes "§" on a German keyboard but "#" on an US keyboard
We cannot make a shortcut that would be international by using shift+3, so we use instead shift+<51>.

We cannot make a shortcut that would be international by using ctrl+shift+3, so we use instead ctrl+shift+<51>.
