Changing keyboard accelerators
By default Plato uses standard accelerators keys that conform as far as
possible with the default Microsoft Visual Studio settings. Accelerator key can
be configured to your preferred settings or you can elect to use Plato2 default
To change accelerator keys, select Options from the main Tools menu and
then select Keyboard from the tree on the left.
A number of menu commands do not have default accelerator keys. These
can also be configured from using this dialog.
You can use one of two buttons to restore the Plato
and Plato2 default settings. Also you can select a command from the commands
column. Information about the command is given in the main status bar where you
will see the standard prompt for the command. Now you can change the
accelerator key using the Accelerator Key group of controls. Select a key from
the drop down list or click on the "Next press" edit box and press the key that
you want to use. Also select the Ctrl/Shift/Alt state. A box labelled "Used by"
indicates when the selected key is already in use (if you continue the old use
will be replaced unless it is used by a macro).
The list view of commands has its own context menu.
