Hello,
I would like to change the default key combinations of TRADOS, as certain combinations don't work on my laptop, esp. combinations with "+", "Num"...(beacuse these keys have other primary usage).
How can I change these combinations?
Thank you in advance,
Kasia

Changing keyboard shortcuts in Word Oct 21, 2005

Dear katjas,
to customize the keyboard shortcuts proceed as follows:


From the menu Tools, select the option Customize

Click on the Keyboard button, visible at the bottom of the dialog.

Now, on the left hand side, in (Categories), select Macro, and on the right hand side will appear the complete list of all macros currently available in your Word environment.

Some of them belong to the Trados interface, and you can identify them because they all start with "tw4win..."

For example:
- tw3winSetClose.Main
- tw4winSetCloseOpenGet.Main
- tw4winTranslateToFuzzy.Main
and so on.


Browse the macros listed, and you will see below the corresponding keyboard combination. You can change them to your liking, one by one, then close the dialog and test the new shortcuts.

* * * *

Note: this procedure is also valid to change (or add) keyboard combination to any standard Word command or macro available in your Word environment, created by yourself or by third parties.


bye
Gianfranco
