User Manual - Global hotkeys

This page explains how to assign an action to any hotkey (on your keyboard), that is globally available. In this example, the monitor is turned off when Ctrl+Shift+F is pressed.

Please click the first picture below and then use the right arrow in the picture, to move to the next one.
All pictures are available in German only - but the buttons are in the same place and our texts contain the English descriptions. We apologize for that.


Please note that the function will only be available in the mode, that you added it to. You can switch to another mode in the "Modes" tab. Choose the general mode to make the function work at any time (independent of the active mode).

Add the Function

Test the Function

Press the hotkey (Strg+Shift+F), to switch your screen off. You can turn it on again by pressing any button on your keyboard or moving the mouse.
