Shortcuts in WebDigAIRange are valid for specific areas of the application only (i.e. namespaces).

For example: It is not possible to define a Calendar shortcut like "openDayView" in the area of Global shortcuts. "openDayView" works in the Calendar area only. You can find an example configuration at the bottom of this page.
