    Editing The File Dropdown Menu

    RKendal
      I use key shortcuts (not to be confused with keyboard shortcuts). For example, to save a file, I'm quite used to Alt-F-S, as most windows applications have underscored shortcut letters in the pulldown words.
      For Fireworks 8, Alt-F-A goes nowhere as both File-Scan and File-Save As use the same key letter of "A".
      Is there a way to edit this conflict out?
      I can't find how to edit the command key shortcuts. I'm very used to pressing Alt-F-A in (my experience) almost all Windows applications for Save As.

          Russ,

          Try Edit > Keyboard Shortcuts

            Thanks, but that doesn't help.
            You can edit keyboard shorcuts just fine, but not shortcut keys.
            I hate to point out other apps, but Word lets you go in and remove or reassign those under-scored keys.

              Rkendal,

              The closest I can come to what you would like to do is to create a
              custom keyboard set and assign Ctrl+A or Alt+A to the Save As Command.

              As far as I can see one cannot reassign Alt+F+A to the Save As Command
              like you can in Word.
