Hi there,

I am working on a Tag Editor job using my laptop. The Set/Close Next Open/Get key (a.k.a. "Alt+Num +") is located very inconveniently on Slovak keyboard. Do you know any way how to create my own shortcut, e.g. Alt+S or Alt+Q?

Any help is greatly appreciated, thanks in advance.

Here are a few lines you could use (adapted to keyboard layout) in a script.ahk:

Send !{NumpadAdd}
return ; alt plus in TE

Send !{NumpadMult}
return ; translate to fuzzy

Send !{Insert}
Send ^{Right}
return ; copy source and jump in

§::Send !{l}
return ; accept all (TE spellcheck)

Send !{Down}
Send {Right}
return ; drops current term

Send !{Right}
Send {Right}
return ; drops next term

Send ^{Right}
return ; moves on

Send ^!{Down}
Send {Right}
return ; drops current tag

Send ^!{Right}
Send {Right}
return ; drops next tag
