Hotkeys are keys and their combinations that allow you to quickly execute various commands without accessing menus and control panels. It is possible to assign hotkeys to call any element of the “Navigator” window , except for the elements of the “Accounts” group . To assign a keyboard shortcut to an element, execute the ” Assign Hotkey” command of its context menu.
Assigned hotkeys take precedence over predefined ones. For example, initially the combination “Ctrl + O” corresponds to the call of the terminal settings window . If the same combination is assigned to call the “On Balance Volume” indicator , then pressing “Ctrl + O” will not be able to call the terminal settings window.
The predefined hotkeys perform different functions depending on which terminal interface window is currently active. Some hotkeys perform specific functions regardless of focus.
