You can customize keyboard shortcuts that you use in memoQ. To do it, you need to create and edit a keyboard shortcut set. A keyboard shortcut set is a collection of keyboard commands that you can use in memoQ, mostly in the translation editor (or other editing tabs).
memoQ can work with one keyboard shortcut set at a time. If you have several keyboard shortcut sets, you can choose the one you use in the Options window. Open the Options window, and choose Keyboard shortcuts. Check the check box of the keyboard shortcut set you want to use. Click OK.
You cannot edit the default keyboard shortcut set. Either you need to make a copy of it, or you need to create a new one.
Default keyboard shortcuts: Keyboard shortcut sets define different keyboard shortcuts - see the documentation about keyboard shortcuts. If you need different keyboard shortcuts, create and edit a new keyboard shortcut set.
How to get here
From the Options window: Open the Options window. Choose Keyboard shortcuts. Under the list, click Create new. From the Options window, you can create local keyboard shortcut sets only. You cannot create a keyboard shortcut set on a server, and you can't use one from a server.
What can you do?
If you come from the Resource Console, and a memoQ server was selected at the top: You can choose to create the keyboard shortcut set on your own computer; or to create it on the server.

You cannot choose another server here. To create the resource on another server: Close this window. Choose the other server at the top of the Resource Console. Click Create new again.
- Type a name in the Name box. The name must be unique on your computer - or on the server where you're creating it.
