Customizing shortcuts

As a Pro user, you can now customize shortcut hotkeys.

To start, go to Settings → Keymap. Click on the shortcut you want to customize and press the new key combination you prefer. And that’s it! The new shortcut will take effect right away; no page refresh is needed.

For the new shortcuts you set, you must use at least one modifier key from Ctrl, Shift, and Alt. The key combination you choose must not conflict with existing ones. Note that the browser won’t let you override certain shortcuts like Ctrl+N and Ctrl+T.

After you customize a shortcut, the shortcut help panel will be updated, as well as their appearance in context menus and tooltips.

To reset a shortcut to default, click on the icon on the right side of the shortcut. This is also an indicator that this shortcut has been overridden.

Please let us know if you have questions about this feature or run into bugs while using it. Enjoy!
