Hi Joseph,

The shortcuts parser was basically written for Unix version of Amaya.
However, Windows does not handle inputs in the same way than Unix.

For instance Ctrl <Key>Return: is handled as a sequence on Unix. Windows
consider Ctrl Return as a special character which code is 0xA (10).

I think that your problem is the same than Ctrl <Key>Return. I'll try to 
solve that but I think that while the parser of Shortcuts is shared
between Unix and Windows, we will always have such problems.
