Bug Description

Sorry if this is the wrong place...

When editing a keyboard shortcut in the settings, the instructions read
"To edit a shortcut, click the row and hold down the new keys or press Backspace to clear."

If you click anywhere on a keyboard shortcut row, the entire row is highlighted, so it appears that you're able to change it. However, pressing a keyboard combination doesn't change anything. In fact, the only way to change the keyboard shortcuts is to click the keyboard shortcut combination, which causes the combination to read "New Shortcut".

So the instructions are vague: You can't just click the row with the shortcut you want to change, you have to actually click the shortcut combination (like Ctrl+W).
