The Shortcuts table format is easy to understand, just a few notes


  • Software : on software or familly of softwares
  • Platform : big classes of GUIs + keyboards : mostly OS X, Microsoft Windows, Linux (GUI being KDE, GNOME or XFCE).
  • Language : sometimes the shortcuts depend on the user language ; ISO 639-1 is used here
  • Context : a software may propose different contexts or optionnal shortcuts layout (not the keyboard layout).
  • Code : code of the shortcut, see below
  • Command : result of the shortcut. "..." at the end means : open a new window, generally a popup
  • Comments : various comments, if needed


The code is a sequence of keys.

  • The symbol "+" means : in the same time, push another key with another finger.
  • The symbol "," means : release all the pressed keys, then, in a few seconds (2 or 3), push something else.
  • The symbol () means : push during a long time, the minimal number of seconds being between parenthesis.

For example :


Means :

Push Ctrl, push K, release both, push Ctrl, push D, release both, push D during 7 seconds.


Here are some shortcuts to help you edit the table :

  • Use a symbol | to say OR. For example, "Windows|Linux", "Alt+F4|Ctrl+Q"...
  • Press space in the begining of a box to use the value above
  • Press enter to save the line
