How do you actually set what the keys do???


When I go to this screen I:

  • press the + button
  • enter the name of the shortcut ('my cool shortcut')
  • press the sequence of keys
  • and... that's where it ends. Where's the part where I define the actual action the shortcut keys will do?

I want to press Ctrl+Shift+T in a zshell terminal and duplicate the current tab that I'm in.

  • What do you mean by "duplicate", exactly? Just the same working directory, the same history or actually the same content? – Adaephon Aug 19 '15 at 7:21
  • Sorry, I mean the same working directory. – fuzzybabybunny Aug 19 '15 at 7:32

It isn't at all obvious, but where you're entering 'my cool shortcut' is not actually a name field. That field expects the path to the executable, e.g. /usr/bin/galculator.
