Support for Ctrl, Alt keys, etc.
Will ShortKeys play back keystrokes such as the Alt key, Ctrl key, Function keys or Windows menu keys?
ShortKeys essentially is a text replacement utility. Type in a few characters and ShortKeys replaces the keystrokes with words, sentences or phrases. That being said, ShortKeys does allow for a number of other keys to be played back.
Below are the list of keys available for playback in ShortKeys 3 and 4. To access these keys in ShortKeys 3, open the Modify Keys window, click on the Insert button and select the Misc Keys option. In ShortKeys 4 the keys are directly accessible from the Modify Keys window.

Select the key you want and it will be inserted into your replacement text at the position of the text cursor.
The Miscellaneous Keys will only work when using the Keyboard method to play back keystrokes.
