Quickly access popular functions with these keyboard accelerators.

Hotkeys settings

Open Settings to the Hotkeys tab. By popular request from professional translators and busy professionals, keyboard shortcuts may now be selectively enabled/disabled. Keyboard accelerators provide immediate access to popular functions--without moving your hands away from the keyboard.

Tip: Why would you disable a hotkey? Some applications may use the same keystroke combination. To quickly disable all hotkeys, un-check the first item: Hotkeys.
