          While the best practice is to recreate any customizations you made from previous versions to the new version to prevent any hiccups, you can certainly try copying the .indk file from the V8 (InDesign CS6) folder to the V9 (CC) folder.

           

          1. Launch InDesign CS6, Edit > Keyboard Shortcuts > create a new set with all your custom keyboard shortcuts
          2. Launch InDesign CC, Edit > Keyboard Shortcuts > create a new set with the same set name as existed in CS6 but make no modifications
          3. Locate and copy the [set name].indk file in version 8 and replace it in version 9
          4. Repeat the above step for any custom sets you made

           

          Here's the path to locate the .indk file

          Windows Vista and Windows 7 & 8
          Users\[username]\AppData\Roaming\Adobe\InDesign\[Version]\[Language]\InDesign Shortcut Sets

          Mac OS
          Users/[username]/Library/Preferences/Adobe InDesign/[version]/[language]/InDesign Shortcut Sets
