Simulate a CTRL-BREAK key

This article explains how to assign keystrokes to simulate CTRL-BREAK used by some applications.

After creating your key, open the keystrokes editor. The fastest way to add keystrokes to the tree is to use the recorder. Start the keystrokes recorder, press and hold CTRL and then press BREAK.

Stop the recorder, and your editor should look like this:


Now double click on the word CANCEL in the keystrokes tree to add an extended flag to that keystroke.


Now you have a key that works just like CTRL-BREAK on a physical keyboard.
