Customize memoQ shortcuts

In memoQ, you can change most keyboard shortcuts. The keyboard shortcuts are grouped in categories. You can edit them directly in the Customize memoQ shortcuts window.

To customize keyboard shortcuts, you need to edit a keyboard shortcut set.

Can't change default shortcuts? First, make a copy of the default set. Then edit the copy, and make it active.

How to get here

  1. On the Quick access toolbar (in the top left corner of the memoQ window), click Options icon_options.
  2. In the Options window, choose Keyboard shortcuts. In the list, select a keyboard shortcut set. Click Edit.

Can't edit the Default shortcut set? If the list has the Default shortcut set only: Select it, and click Clone. Clone it or create a new one before editing. The Clone keyboard shortcut set into a new resource window appears. Type a name for the new shortcut set. Click OK. In the Keyboard shortcuts list, select the new shortcut set. Click Edit.
