Visual Keyboard Shortcut Editor

You can use the Visual Keyboard Shortcut editor to view the keys with their assigned shortcuts, assign new shortcuts, and delete existing ones. The feature also lets you easily navigate and provides maximum workflow efficiency. A tool tip reveals the full command name when you hover over a key in the Keyboard layout. 

When you select a key on the Keyboard Layout, you can view all the commands that are assigned to that key and all other modifier combinations.

  • Audition detects the keyboard hardware and the appropriate keyboard layout is displayed accordingly.
  • When Audition detects a non-supported keyboard, the default view is to display the U.S. English keyboard. By default, the Adobe Audition Default preset is displayed.
  • When you change a shortcut, the preset pop-up menu changes to Custom. After you make the required changes, use the Save As option to save the customized shortcut set as a preset. 

 

Using and customizing the Visual Keyboard Shortcut

  • To view the Visual Keyboard Shortcuts, select Edit < Keyboard Shortcuts.

The Keyboard Shortcut window appears which shows you the layout of a keyboard. The keys with shortcuts assigned are marked in Purple. All the shortcuts (marked in purple) are application-wide shortcuts.

Shortcut assignment using drag-and-drop

You can assign shortcuts by dragging a command from the Command List to a key in the Keyboard Layout, or on a modifier combination for the currently selected key displayed in the Key Modifier List. The Command List and the Modifier List appear below the keyboard. 

  • To assign a command to a key along with a modifier, hold down the modifiers during drag-and-drop.
  • To remove shortcuts assigned to a key, select a key and click Undo

Conflict resolution

When an existing shortcut conflicts with another command:

  • A warning appears at the bottom of the editor. 
  • Undo and Clear buttons in the lower right corner are enabled.  
  • The command in conflict is highlighted in blue, and clicking this automatically selects the command in the command list. 

This allows users to easily change the assignment for the conflicting command.
