Keyboard shortcuts in custom commands

Apr 8, 2013 4:17 PM

Hi. I am trying to specify Control+, as a keyboard shortcut in a custom FrameMaker command defined in an ExtendScript script. I am using this:


var cmd1 = DefineCommand(1, "LinkToHeadingStepOne", "L1", "^,");


The command works, but the keyboard shortcut doesn't. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.

    Hi Rick,


    This is a super late response and I only bumped into the thread because I was looking for something similar. Did you ever get this to work? I tried this for the first time yesterday and had no problems on FM11. When I issue something similar:


    cmd = DefineCommand(1111, "TestScriptCommand", "TestScriptCommand", "^q");


    ...Ctrl+q executes the command. It also works in combination with the "+" sign to require a Shift key press as well, at least with alphabetical characters. Maybe something weird about using a comma?
