                                                   Creating Shortcuts with arrow keys? Function keys?

I stumbled across the List of Shortcuts feature at the bottom of the screen (under Divers) and I found the post which provides an example on how to use that function to create your own. Perfect! I could use quite a few of these!

But I'm having trouble setting a key combo. I notice that one of the built-in shortcuts is an arrow key (although I have no idea what that shortcut does or how to make it work) and another shortcut is a function key. But when I try to add my own shortcut ("Right Arrow" with a SHIFT key modifier), it tells me that the key value should contain just one character. (The same thing happened if I tried to set it to something like F4 instead of "Right Arrow".) Is this a bug, or how does someone identify a key that isn't represented by a single character as their shortcut?


PS: It would be very appreciated if mouse buttons (MOUSE3, MOUSE4, MOUSE5) with and without SHIFT/CONTROL/ALT modifiers were available along with the keyboard choices. Going back-and-forth between the mouse and keyboard can be a real productivity killer sometimes.

Trading financial instruments, including foreign exchange on margin, carries a high level of risk and is not suitable for all investors. The high degree of leverage can work against you as well as for you. Before deciding to invest in financial instruments or foreign exchange you should carefully consider your investment objectives, level of experience, and risk appetite. The possibility exists that you could sustain a loss of some or all of your initial investment and therefore you should not invest money that you cannot afford to lose. You should be aware of all the risks associated with trading and seek advice from an independent financial advisor if you have any doubts.
