To Edit a Hotkey for a Workspace Management Function

  1. In the Hotkey Editor window, double-click a hotkey.

    Alternatively, select a hotkey and click Open.

    The Edit Key dialog box displays with the specifics for that hotkey.

  2. For Step 1, from the pull-down menu, select A workspace management function.

    To change the type of target that the hotkey will trigger, select the appropriate option from the pull-down menu.

  3. In Step 2, select an option under Workspace Function:

    • Previous Workspace - Moves you to the previous workspace

    • Next Workspace - Moves you to the next workspace

    • Goto Workspace - Moves you to a specified workspace

    • Create Workspace - Creates a new workspace

    • Delete Workspace - Deletes a workspace

    • Pack Icons - Packs the icons in the workspace

    • Refresh All Windows - Updates all windows with any changes you made

    • Toggle Front Panel - Toggles the front panel between the open and close state

    • Pass Keys - The defined pass key will override all existing hotkeys. Toggle the pass key hotkey to switch between the on/off modes.

    The Workspace Name listbox contains the workspace names as shown on the front panel. The Workspace Name listbox contains a system identifier in case duplicate names are created. The Workspace Name listbox is enabled only if the workspace function list on the left requires a workspace argument.

  4. Under Step 3, in the text field, type the keystrokes of your choice that will replace the currently defined hotkey.

  5. (Optional) Specify where the hotkey will be active.

    • Everywhere - The created hotkey takes precedence over an application assigned hotkey

    • Only in application windows - The hotkey is effective only in an application window

    • Only on the desktop - Hotkey is effective only on the backdrop of the monitor

  6. Click Update.

  7. Click Cancel to close the dialog box.

  8. In the main Hotkey Editor window, choose Save from the File menu.

    This will activate the hotkey.

You cannot edit multiple hotkeys in the same Edit Key dialog box. You will have to complete the edits on the current hotkey, close the Edit Key dialog box, and then select and open the next hotkey to be edited.
