Me foolish, I had managed it before, but don't remember how, and accepting BeGlobal-query yesterday RESET all my customization (without asking)

Studio 2011:
I want a keyboard short that enables me to perform a concordance search in SOURCE language even if my cursor is placed in TARGET column, and without need to go up in the concordance window and select "search target" every time I search.
It should be an obvious command, because many people chose to copy source when no match is found, but SDL developpers appearently do not think it's important.

There are Custom commands in Options/Keyboard shortcut, but no explanation about how to enter such a Custom command, not even in online-support.

Thank you in advance.
Luca

... as I think the developers have managed to automagically place it into your software.

Concordance : F3
Source Concordance : Ctrl+F3
Target Concordance : Ctrl+Shift+F3

Solved, thank you Feb 13, 2014

Hi

You are right... I only looked in shortcuts under Concordance, but your clue was under Source Concordance.
I've now changed to Ctrl+numpad0, and it works, because .. it looks in source when I am in both target and source column.

So that was solved.
Ctrl-F3 would be much more "loading" on my right shoulder (and who manages to press ctrl-f3 with only left hand?)

Thank you
Luca
