I used to have the key combination Ctrl+Alt+Shift+' to start my scanner from the desktop (after having used the same in GIMP for years), but for some reason it is gone and I cannot recreate it. Keyboard is UK layout, and it's the ' (@) key I'm trying to use.

Clicking on the shortcut key window followed by Shift + Ctrl + Alt enters


in the box, and from here any letter A-Z or number 0-9 key works. as do many others like []-=,./;#

However, as soon as I press Ctrl+Alt+Shift+', the dialog loses focus and the field reverts to None.

How can I get my old keyboard shortcut back?
