Customizing your Toolbars (5 of 10)

The Keyboard Tab

    Keyboard shortcuts, as long as you can remember them, are a real time-saver.

Instead of opening a menu and choosing a command, you can simply press two or three keys at the same time and get the same result.

NotateIt offers numerous keyboard shortcuts for giving commands, but if your favourite command doesn't have a shortcut key, you can make one.

Don't worry about making mistakes. You can always restore the original shortcuts by clicking on the 'Reset All' button.

You might like to print out or view a list of current shortcuts before you start making your changes. You can do this from the NotateIt program. On the menu bar, click on Tools | Shortcut Map.

* To add a shortcut

The 'Categories' box lists menu names in a drop-down list.

Select one of these names and a new list of commands for that menu name are displayed in the 'Commands' box.

Click on the command you want to assign a shortcut to.

If a shortcut has already been assigned to this command, it will be shown in the 'Current Keys' box.

Click in the 'Press New Shortcut Key' box.

Enter the actual key combination you want to use for your shortcut. For example, if the combination you require is Shift+Ctrl+B, hold down Shift, hold down Ctrl and press B. Don't type it out in words!

The words "Currently Assigned To" and a command name appear if the keys you selected have already been assigned to another command.

When you are satisfied that your shortcut is correct, click the 'Assign' button.

* To remove a shortcut

In the 'Commands' box, find the command you need to remove the shortcut from and click on it.

Select the keyboard shortcut in the 'Current Keys' box and click the 'Remove' button.

* To restore original shortcuts

Click the 'Reset All' button to restore all of the original NotateIt shortcuts and remove all the shortcuts you have created.
