Keyboard

The Keyboard tab allows you to define (or change) keyboard shortcuts for any DatabaseSpy command.

In the Set accelerator for drop-down list, you can differentiate between shortcuts that are valid in the Default menu or in the DatabaseSpy Design menu.

 

 

To assign a new Shortcut to a command:

1.Select the All Commands category using the Category combo box.
2.Select the command you want to assign a new shortcut to, in the Commands list box.
3.Click in the Press New Shortcut Key text box, and press the shortcut keys that are to activate the command. The shortcuts appear immediately in the text box. If the shortcut was assigned previously, then that function is displayed below the text box.
4.Click the Assign button to assign the shortcut.

 

The shortcut now appears in the Current Keys list box. (To clear this text box, press any of the control keys, Ctrl, Alt or Shift).

 

 

To de-assign or delete a shortcut:

1.Click the shortcut you want to delete in the Current Keys list box.
2.Click the Remove button.
3.Click the Close button to confirm.

 

 

To reset all shortcut keys:

1.Click the Reset All button to reset all the shortcut keys to the state they were when the program was installed. A prompt appears stating that all toolbars and menus will be reset.
2.Click Yes to confirm the reset.
