System-wide Hotkeys

System-wide shortcuts (often referred to as hotkeys) function even if ADR Master is not the frontmost application.

The Enable system-wide shortcuts preference can be found in Preferences>MISC.

As these shortcuts are not customisable, it is possible that they interfere with existing shortcuts in other apps. Unticking this checkbox will disable them completely.

A restart of ADR Master is required for the changes to take effect.
