ImTranslator shortcuts are customizable. The default shortcuts to run ImTranslator applications combine the function keys (Alt, Ctrl) with letters keys. You can easily change the keys to any letter, number or other function key.
Open Options by clicking the Options icon on the translation window or select Options from the Chrome toolbar. Open the Shortcuts panel and change the key.
Please keep in mind that some key combinations cannot be assigned, when used by the browser.
Setting identical shortcuts for different tasks is not allowed, as it will result in the shortcut conflict.
If the new key combination has been already reserved, the conflicting shortcuts will be highlighted in red and the shortcuts conflict window appears. You will be prompted to re-assign the shortcut keys to resolve the conflict.
You can also temporarily deactivate shortcuts, if desired, by clearing the checkbox next to the shortcut name.
Do not forget to Save Options. Refer to ImTranslator Options tutorial.
