Modifying the EDAPT CS shortcuts set (v.3 and higher) to better suit your needs

If you’d like to use EDAPT Shortcuts as a starting point for your customized set the best way to start would be to create a copy, change its name and work on that.

There are xml comments inside the file so finding your way should be straight forward. All entries are sorted according to key code and start with a comment indicating which actual key they refer to.

Please, keep in mind that many of the EDAP Tools commands are multifunction and listen for specific modifier keys.
For example Convert To Keyframe Advanced has two modes: Normal and Extreme.
Normal responds to the single key shortcut [ F6 ]
Extreme to [ Alt+F6 ]
If you want to assign a different set of shortcuts to this command, Extreme will always need Alt+ combination to function.

Here is an example:
These are the universal F6 shortcuts for Windows – F6 – Standard mode, Alt+F6 – Extreme mode, Shift+F6 – Remove Keyframes.
F6 key is defined by its keycode 117

<!--	[ F6 ]	-->
	<Shortcut name="04      Convert To Keyframe Advanced" key="117" scope="IDR_MAINFRAME" flags="3" />
	<Shortcut id="32994" key="117" scope="IDR_SKETCHTYPE" flags="7" />
	<Shortcut name="04      Convert To Keyframe Advanced" key="117" scope="IDR_MAINFRAME" flags="19" />
<Shortcut name="04      Convert To Keyframe Advanced" key="117" scope="1" flags="3" />
<Shortcut id="32994" key="117" scope="2" flags="7" />
<Shortcut name="04      Convert To Keyframe Advanced" key="117" scope="1" flags="19" />

If we want instead of [ F6 ] to create and remove Keyframes with the key [ X ] all we need to do is replace the keycode 117 with 88 like this:

<!--	[ F6 changed to X ]	-->
	<Shortcut name="04      Convert To Keyframe Advanced" key="88" scope="IDR_MAINFRAME" flags="3" />
	<Shortcut id="32994" key="88" scope="IDR_SKETCHTYPE" flags="7" />
	<Shortcut name="04      Convert To Keyframe Advanced" key="88" scope="IDR_MAINFRAME" flags="19" />
<Shortcut name="04      Convert To Keyframe Advanced" key="88" scope="1" flags="3" />
<Shortcut id="32994" key="88" scope="2" flags="7" />
<Shortcut name="04      Convert To Keyframe Advanced" key="88" scope="1" flags="19" />
