As a safeguard, only a custom set can be edited. The default sets cannot be modified or deleted, even accidentally.
- From the main menu, select Edit -> Edit Keyboard Shortcuts…. The Edit Keyboard Shortcuts dialog opens.
- Select a previously created custom shortcut set.
- Under the Command column, click on the function that requires a new or different shortcut. Selecting a function that is subsequently highlighted in orange can’t be edited, however, those that change instantly from orange to gray are editable.
- Type in the chosen keyboard shortcut in the adjacent text field under the Key column. Repeat the action for each selection. The new shortcuts are effective immediately (and are updated in the main menu against next to the tools, where applicable).
- Click on Close to shut the dialog. All of the edits are saved automatically.
Capture One can display a summary of the selected set using your default browser.
- In the main menu, select Edit -> Edit Keyboard Shortcuts. Click on Summarize... and get the currently selected keyboard shortcut setup. Capture One opens your default internet browser and displays the summary in a new window.
- Close the browser tab or window to dismiss.
The Edit Keyboard Shortcuts dialog has a search feature that will help you to quickly find which commands you can apply keyboard shortcuts to or whether a particular key (or keystroke combination) is already in use.
- Open the Edit Keyboard Shortcuts dialog from the Edit menu.
- Select either Command or Key from the Search drop-down menu, depending on which type you want to search for.
- Type in a command or keystroke in the search field and a list of all the related commands or keystroke combinations will appear. For example, if you select Command and type in “mask”, a list of all the mask-related commands will appear.
- You can select a command from the list and enter the desired keyboard shortcut (or keystroke combination) in order to assign it.
- In order to view all commands and keyboard shortcut again, clear the search field by clicking on the cross at the end of the search field.
