Our goal is to limit potential conflicts with other applications, though since these are impossible to prevent entirely, we make sure it’s easy to re-assign global hotkeys.
*Hotkeys marked with an asterisk are disabled by default and must be enabled in the settings first.
Default global hotkeys
These are the defaults, which can easily be customized during the set-up process or in the settings. If you’ve customized a hotkey, then this hotkey will remain customized even though the default options in a newer version of ClipClip may have changed.
