Complete the following steps to customize keyboard shortcuts for edit-time menu items.

  1. Select Tools»Options to display the Options dialog box.
  2. Select Menu Shortcuts from the Category list.
  3. In the Menu Item window, select the menu item for which you want to create a shortcut.
  4. Select the Shortcut text box and press the combination of keys on your keyboard that you want to assign to the selected menu item as a shortcut.
  5. Click the Set button to apply the change.
  6. Click the OK button.

Press the combination of keys on your keyboard that you want to assign to the selected menu item as a shortcut. When you press <alphanumeric key> or <alphanumeric key-Shift>, LabVIEW automatically appends <Ctrl> as a modifier key. (Mac OS X) LabVIEW automatically appends the <Command> as a modifier key. For function keys <F1> to <F24>, LabVIEW does not automatically append <Ctrl> as a modifier key, but you can use these function keys with <Ctrl> as a modifier key. Currently, LabVIEW does not support key combinations with <Alt> as shortcuts.

If you select a key combination that LabVIEW reserves as a shortcut, a warning appears and LabVIEW disables the Set button. If you select a key combination assigned to another menu item, a conflict warning appears and displays the menu item that already has that keyboard shortcut, but the Set button remains enabled. You also can restore the default LabVIEW menu shortcuts.

LabVIEW does not respond to keyboard shortcuts for dimmed menu items.

Note  (Mac OS X) Keyboard shortcuts using the function keys work only if Exposé does not assign the function keys as shortcut keys. LabVIEW does not support <VolumeUp>, <VolumeDown>, and function keys <F15> to <F24> as shortcut keys on Mac OS X.
