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

Russell

I have no problem typing/keying Ctrl+U into that textbox. (The result does not show up in the textbox until you actually press the 'U' key.)

Johan's picture seems to suggest it was already being used to convert text in the editor to lower case (probably something you can live without I guess?)
