I tested the creation of shortcuts for the menus in the source (only for
the moment) of TeXworks.
Here is a file showing the different menus.
I defined the following shortcuts: (for the menu title it is between
brackets, in the menu I only give the letters in the right order)
[F]ile: N F O (P) C S A L V X Q
[E]dit: N R U C P E L B H S F
[S]earch: F G R A I P S L H
Forma[t]: F C U I N L W H S A Q
[S]cripts: S (sorry here I forgot to change S to C -> duplicate with
[W]indow: W S T B L R G F H
[H]elp: T E A
But the acccelerators (underlined letters in the menu bar) appears only
after pressing Alt, by default.
This is *not* linked to TeXworks, it is a Windows option, to get them
shown automatically, even without [Alt]:
- Right-click on desktop
- uncheck "Hide underlined letters (accelerators) until Alt is pressed"
(or something like this, I have a French version)
You'll find the program and dlls in http://www.leliseron.org/texworks

Delimiters: "[Alt]+E" and then "b"
There are some problems:
1) In the File menu the p of Open Recent is not underlined and so the
shortcut doesn't work!!! Why???
It is possible to define a shortcut for actionOpen_Recent as described
on the web site above.
2) With this version, I can only get the English menu system, the French
one doesn't work anymore; but with TeXworks without accelerators in the
source, I get the French menus, even with accelerators (defined in the
If this is wanted, I could complete the system for the sub-menus, the
preview and for the dialog boxes.
NB. In the script menu I have many scripts with shortcuts and
accelerators, but this is another story!! (If you are kind I'll tell you
