Accelerator key names

Accelerators keys are attributes defining the keyboard shortcuts for actions.

Action accelerator keys are typically associated with action default attributes. For a complete usage description, see Defining keyboard accelerators for actions.

Keyboard key names can be combined with key modifiers, to define key combinations such as [Ctrl] + [P].

Tip: To force an action to have no accelerator, specify "none" as the accelerator name.
