Under General Preferences > Shortcuts.

There are also lists in the manual though there appears to be a problem displaying symbols: http://wordfast.com/WFP/5.3/c1471880.html

Confirm and move to next segment Jan 9

It looks like WordFast doesn't have a keyboard shortcut to Confirm and move to next segment. Am I right?

Doesn't Alt + Down work for you?

Next, or next untranslated? Jan 11

To the next segment, yes, it's just Ctrl+Enter. However, it'd be nice to have a shortcut for confirming and moving to the next UNTRANSLATED segment.

Anyone at WordFast, hello?

The URL given by John looks very odd and unhelpful, but it's actually quite useful once you know how to interpret it.

In the Shortcut column, where it says "Select Binding", it simply means that that particular action doesn't have a shortcut assigned to it, but you optionally assign a shortcut to it if you want to. This makes sense once you realise that a shortcut in WFP5 speek is a "binding".

To change a shortcut in WFP5, go to Wordfast Pro > Preferences > Shortcuts, then click on the text "Choose Binding", and then press the shortcut that you want to change it to.

If a shortcut that you're trying to assign, is already used for something else, WFP5 will warn you about this with a message similar to this one:

(tongue in check, sorry)

By the way, in the WFP3 dialog for changing shortcuts (which WFP3 calls "keys" instead of shortcuts), you can search for shortcuts based on their function as well as their keys, but in the WFP5 dialog, you can only search by function. In other words, in WFP3 I can type "Ctrl+End" and it will tell me which action Ctrl+End is for, but in WFP5, searching for "Ctrl+End" produces no results, but if you search for what Ctrl+End does, then it does show up in the results.
