My Keyboard Shortcuts Not Shortcuts

    Chami,

    I really like being able to use keyboard shortcuts because it is faster
    than using the mouse. In HK292 I had a lot of custom shortcuts.
    However, in Tools, I can't get them to execute from the pressing of the
    keyboard combinations and I can not figure out why. Here are a couple
    that I wrote:

    @title Curly Brackets

    @version 20110512

    @keywords

    @begin-shortcut "default" [key="Shift+Ctrl+Q", movecursor=1, useseltext=1]

    “{{SELTEXT}}|”

    @end-shortcut "default"

    and

    @title Definition List Term

    @keywords

    @begin-shortcut "default" [key="Ctrl+Alt+t", movecursor=1, useseltext=1]

    <dt>{{SELTEXT}}|</dt>]

    @end-shortcut "default"

    What needs to change to cause execution via the keyboard? If I go to
    menu: Tools | Keyboard Shortcuts and click on the action, they work.

      This works for me. Do you by any chance have any other shortcuts that
      use this key combination?

      and
      ...

      @begin-shortcut "default" [key="Ctrl+Alt+t", movecursor=1, useseltext=1]

      <dt>{{SELTEXT}}|</dt>]

      With this one, changing the key to "Ctrl+Alt+T" (uppercasing T) got it
      working for me.
