Well, you can detect the control key and the keycode in a keystroke event. So yes you can do this, but it's tricky, because Acrobat overrides some keystroke combinations. If Acrobat is using it, then it won't be received by the keystroke event. Go ahead and try it to see what happens.

You can't really modify the default keystroke handling.
