Defining a hot key
When you create or edit a hot key in the "Hot Keys" panel, a dialog box appears with controls for configuring the hot key.
This is simply a description you can give to a hot key. It will appear in the hot key list in the control panel.
To define your hot key, click in this field and type the desired keystroke. You may use any key in conjunction with any combination of the shift, control, option and command (apple) keys. Once you type your keystroke, it will appear in this field.
Note: Be careful not to use simple keystrokes that may conflict with those used by an application (such as "command-W", which is used by many applications to close a window). We recommend uncommon combinations, such as command-option-(letter), to avoid these conflicts.
