Chapter 2. Customizing Flash 5 to Suit Y... > Custom Keyboard Shortcuts

Custom Keyboard Shortcuts

If you’re already comfortable with the keyboard shortcuts from another graphics program, Flash enables you to stick with shortcuts you already know, rather than learn a whole new set. You also can customize a shortcut set to include your own shortcuts.

Exercise 2.5 Creating Custom Keyboard Shortcuts

To design your own set, you must make a duplicate of an existing set and then modify it.

1.
Choose Edit > Keyboard Shortcuts.

2.
From the Current Set pull-down menu, select the Flash 5 shortcut set and click the Duplicate Set button to the right of the Current Set list.

3.
Enter MyList as a unique name for your new shortcut list, and then click OK.

4.
Use the Commands pull-down menu to select the category of the item for which you wish to create a shortcut. For this exercise, expand the Insert submenu under Drawing Menu Commands.

5.
Select Layer. Notice that there is no keyboard shortcut currently established.

6.
Click the Add button to create a new shortcut. Press Ctrl+Shift+Y to set these keystrokes as a keyboard shortcut. This keystroke combination won’t be accepted until you click the Change button.

7.
Once you’ve clicked the Change button, you should see your new shortcut reflected in the Commands menu. Click OK.
