Identify comments in Java properties file

Hi all TRADOS experts,

My TRADOS version is SDL Trados Studio 2014 Professional - 11.0.3709.0, and this question relates to Java properties files.

My question is:

Currently I have a Java properties (.properties) file. 1 sample of the file is as below:
CMD_CUSTOMIZE_RESET.shorttext =Reset
CMD_CUSTOMIZE_RESET.text =Reset to defaults
CMD_CUSTOMIZE_RESET.helptext =Reset to original values
CMD_CUSTOMIZE_RESET.tooltip =Reset to original values
CMD_CUSTOMIZE_RESET.shortcut =ctrl K

Now what I want to do is to translate all of these, EXCEPT the shortcut tag (i.e. the last line). However, when I go to Project settings, I cannot make TRADOS understand that I want to exclude that line (e.g. in MemoQ we can setup something like this: , i.e. setup comment that contains the "shortcut" word)

TRADOS only has delimiter to distinguish comments, and I cannot use it. Can you please kindly advise?

Thank you very much.
