Dear colleagues,

I would like to know if there is any possibility to assign shortcut keys to the current "actions" in TagEditor (for the commands "open/get", "Set/Close next Open/Get" etc).

When I'm proofreading ttx files, I like to do it directly in TagEditor for comparing the orginal text with my translation (to verify that I didn't forget anything). That's very practical, but after having read the equivalent of 50 Word pages on that way, my hand got hurt because of the repeated mouse clics (oh yes, simple mouse clics can cause tendinitis, I didn't know that yet icon_frown.gif) Shortcut keys could perhaps partly resolve the problem.

Thanks in advance and have a nice day.

- Simone -

You cannot assign your own shortcuts Sep 5, 2011

But why not use the existing ones?
The easiest way to find them is the menu Workbench, where most of the shortucts are listed.
Also refer to Workbench and TagEditor help.
