Note

  • Do not make duplicated keys
  • By default, some different operations share the same Shortcut key(xxx.key), if you decide to change one of them, make sure to change them all
  • If you re-install Astah (by getting a newer version, etc), adjust the difference between the new “astah-key.properties_org” and your customized “astah-key.properties” file
