Keys Options

Customizable program shortcuts

Commands can be invoked by pressing certain keys in the keyboard as shortcuts. For example, holding down the Ctrl modifier key with the 'S' key invokes the save command. Now, key bindings, which is the assignment of keys to commands, can be customized. This permits you to use the familiar keystroke for invoking commands in Visual Paradigm.

To assign/re-assign a key:

  1. Double-click on the binding cell of the desired action.
  2. Click on the Binding field at the bottom of dialog box.
  3. Press the key for invoking the command selected. The binding field will be updated accordingly.
  4. Press OK button to confirm the updates. You will be prompted to restart the application in order to make the changes take effect. By restarting, you can invoke commands using the key defined.
