Productivity Tip

To find a custom shortcut key you've already assigned, or to check whether a specific shortcut key combination is still available, press the shortcut in the "Assigned Shortcut:" field of the Edit Custom Shortcut Keys popup. You can filter all shortcuts that use that combination of keys (in full or part).

Example: Enter CTRL + U in the assigned shortcut field and the results field will display the Autofit Columns keyboard shortcut, which by default is CTRL+ALT+Shift+U.
