Modify MB-Ruler.htk

Open the file MB-Ruler.htk in a text editor, to modify the settings of the hotkeys. (The file MB-Ruler.htk is available after the first execution of MB-Ruler.)
Set the item UseThisTable in the section Generel to 1 to activate the file:


Every hotkey has its own section. The internal name of each hotkey is listed in the third row of the table above.
These value can be modified:

UseThisHotKey =1 this hotkey is used
=0 this hotkey is deactivated
OverrideAppParameter =1 the keycodes defined in this section are used for this hotkey
=0the predefined keycodes are used for this hotkey
Modifier and Virtualkey define the keyboard codes for the function keys.
Have a look the MSDN Help for valid values.

Restart MB-Ruler to use the new hotkey definition.
