These keys can be assigned different functions in Editor, but this is not advisable as such a changed layout is not valid in other DAC windows.

DAC supports key combinations which involve pressing two key combinations consecutively. For example, the combination marked "Ctrl + O, A" means that the you should press and hold down the "Ctrl" and "O" keys, then release them and press "A". Although it has not been explicitly specified, such combinations can be effected by pressing "Ctrl + O, Ctrl + A" or "Ctrl + O, Shift + A". That is, while pressing the second key in the key combination, you may hold down the "Ctrl" or "Shift" key.

Key combinations marked "Ctrl + Shift + A" mean that all three keys specified should be pressed simultaneously.
