Assigning key commands

You can assign key commands to many functions; for example, for functions you use frequently but that do not have a key command assigned by default. You can also change existing key commands.


  1. Press Ctrl/Cmd-, to open Preferences.
  2. In the category list, click Key Commands.
  3. Search for the name of a function and select it.

    For particularly long names, you can hover over them to see a tool tip.

  4. Optional: If the function already has an assigned key command, click Remove Key Command in the Key Commands section.

    If you assign a new key command without removing an existing one, you can use either key command.

  5. Click the Press shortcut input field.
  6. Press the key command that you want to assign on your computer keyboard.
  7. Click Add Key Command.
  8. Click Apply, then Close.


The key command you pressed is added to the list of assigned key commands for the selected menu item or function. You can use it immediately.
