Hotkey Keypress

The keypress for each hotkey can be:


a simple key combo (for example, key-ctrlkey-shiftkey-a)


a special Hotkey combo, which means that you have to first press the pre-defined Hotkey Shortcut Key, then another key combo. For example, if the Shortcut Hotkey Key is the default key-ctrlkey-K, then you could assign to a hotkey a key-ctrlkey-K, key-a combination).


The Shortcut Hotkey Key can be changed in the Settings - Keyboard Shortcuts. By default it is key-ctrlkey-K.


When a trading window, such as a Chart, is active, pressing the Shortcut Hotkey Key will change the cursor to redgear in order to show that another keypress is expected to complete the combination.
