Setting the Keyboard Shortcuts dialog box options

Setting the Keyboard Shortcuts dialog box options

The purpose of this dialog box is to create your own shortcut keys, edit existing shortcuts, or select a predetermined set of shortcuts.

To complete the Keyboard Shortcuts dialog box:

  1. Set any of the following options:

    Current Set allows you to choose a set of predetermined shortcuts included with Dreamweaver, or any custom set you’ve defined. The predetermined sets are listed at the top of the menu. For example, if you are familiar with the shortcuts found in HomeSite or BBEdit, you can use those shortcuts by choosing the corresponding predetermined set.

    Commands allows you to select a category of commands to edit. For example, you can edit menu commands, such as the Open command, or code editing commands, such as Balance Braces.

    The command list displays the commands associated with the category you selected from the Commands pop-up menu, along with the assigned shortcuts. The Menu Commands category displays this list as a tree view that replicates the structure of the menus. The other categories list the commands by name (such as Quit Application), in a flat list.

    Shortcuts displays all shortcuts assigned to the selected command.

    Add Item (+) adds a new shortcut to the current command. Click this button to add a new blank line to the Shortcuts text box. Enter a new key combination and click Change to add a new keyboard shortcut for this command. You can assign two different keyboard shortcuts for each command; if there are already two shortcuts assigned to a command, the Add Item button does nothing.

    Remove Item (-) removes the selected shortcut from the list of shortcuts.

    Press Key displays the key combination you enter when you’re adding or changing a shortcut.

    Change adds the key combination shown in the Press Key text box to the list of shortcuts, or changes the selected shortcut to the specified key combination.

    Duplicate duplicates the current set. Give the new set a name; the default name is the current set’s name with the word copy appended.

    Rename renames the current set.

    Save as HTML File saves the current set in an HTML table format for easy viewing and printing. You can open the HTML file in your browser and print the shortcuts for easy reference.

    Delete deletes a set. (You cannot delete the active set.)

  2. Click OK.

To remove a shortcut from a command:

  1. From the Commands pop-up menu, select a command category.

    The Commands list displays the commands in that category.

  2. In the Commands list, select a command.

    The shortcuts assigned to the command appear in the Shortcuts text box.

  3. Select a shortcut.
  4. Click the Remove Item (-) button.

To add a shortcut to a command:

  1. From the Commands pop-up menu, select a command category.

    The Commands list displays the commands in that category.

  2. In the Commands list, select a command.

    The shortcuts assigned to the command appear in the Shortcuts text box.

  3. Prepare to add a shortcut by doing one of the following:
    • If there are fewer than two shortcuts already assigned to the command, click the Add Item (+) button. A new blank line appears in the Shortcuts text box and the insertion point moves to the Press Key text box.
    • If there are already two shortcuts assigned to the command, select one of them (that one will be replaced by the new shortcut). Then click in the Press Key text box.
  4. Press a key combination.

    The key combination appears in the Press Key text box.

  5. Click Change. The new key combination is assigned to the command.

To edit an existing shortcut:

  1. From the Commands pop-up menu, select a command category.

    The Commands list displays the commands in that category.

  2. In the Commands list, select a command.

    The shortcuts assigned to the command appear in the Shortcuts text box.

  3. Select a shortcut to change.
  4. Click in the Press Key text box and enter a new key combination.
  5. Click the Change button to change the shortcut.
