Launching Keyboard Shortcuts Panel
More about the Visual Keyboard Shortcuts Panel
The visual keyboard layout comes in handy while customizing the shortcuts or assigning a new shortcut to a command.
You can use the keyboard GUI to see which keys have been assigned and which are available for assignment. A tool tip reveals the full command name when you hover over a key in the Keyboard layout. When you select a modifier key on the keyboard layout, the keyboard displays all the shortcuts which require that modifier. You can also press the modifier key on the hardware keyboard to achieve this result.
When you select a key on the Keyboard Layout, you can view all the commands assigned to that unmodified key and all other modifier combinations.
Color Coding helps identify Application shortcuts and Panel shortcuts
Creating a 'New keyboard shortcut' for a specific command
You can create a new Keyboard shortcut using one of these methods:-
A) By Typing on your Physical Keyboard
B) By dragging and dropping the Visual Keyboard Keys to the Shortcuts column
Note: Alternatively, you can also assign shortcuts by dragging a command from the command List onto a key in the Keyboard Layout,
C) You can start with your preferred Key
In case if you have a key in mind that could be easy to remember for a particular action, you can start with the Key.
When there is a conflict with a shortcut that is already in use with another command, a warning dialog will appear
Note: In case of the panel level conflict, when there is an Application command using the same shortcut, The notification/status area will show an info/message, eg. The shortcut 'Ctrl+C' is already in use by the Application command: 'Copy,' which will be overridden by this Panel command when the panel has a focus
Print keyboard shortcuts for quick reference
You can paste the lists of keyboard shortcuts from the Keyboard Customization dialog box into a text document, like a spreadsheet, from which you can print.
