    At the top of the list there are the “General” short cut options. “All” displays all commands and their related shortcut keys if a shortcut has been allocated. “All Defined” displays the key-in short cuts and the related command. “All Not Defined” displays all the commands without key-in shortcuts. “All Reserved” displays the keys and key combinations that cannot be used, these are shown between less than and greater than symbols (< >) or “Angled Brackets” and are listed in Figure 3.

    Below the “General” list, the shortcuts are broken down further into the commands relating to specific “Tabs”, this will also include any “Plug-ins” that have been added. (Plug-ins don’t tend to have short cut keys allocated to avoid duplication). Moving further down the “Filter” list, displayed are the short cuts relating to specific “Menus” and “Bars”, i.e. “Application Menu”, “Status Bar” and “View Cube” to name three. The standard shortcut listing was at one time, available as a downloadable “App” for Apple and Android.
