HI all - I thought that this was an 'obvious' question - but can't seem to get this right (or see much in the forums on this) -
Using Studio 6 6.1.2674 SP1
I have a menu shortcut to a USBasb programmer which pops up as follows when I click Tools Menu (see tools_menu.jpg):
So now I was hoping to assign a keyboard shortcut - or combo of keys to press to program the device - just for convenience.
So following the instructions in ext_tools.jpg - see attachment, I tried to add a shortcut to Tools.ExternalCommand1 (see shortcut_menu.jpg)
When I click in the Press shortcut keys box within this window, I only seem to be allowed to type any of the function keys (F1, F2 etc)
The key here (excuse my choice of words!) seems to be the instruction that reads: To assign a shortcut (accelerator) to a command, add a ampersand (&) in the title of the tool, just before the letter that you want to use as the access key.
Umm - where do I type this ?
Say for example, I want to program with the USBasp by typing: Cntrl -U (assuming that it was not already assigned)
I'm obviously misunderstanding something here.
Apologies in advance for dumbness
