Description Yousuf Philips (jay) (retired) 2015-11-24 12:50:30 UTC
I attempted to customize the shortcut keys for the view modes but none would work or appear next to the text in the View menu. I attempted to set Normal view to Ctrl+1, Ctrl+Shift+F1, and Alt+1, but none would work.

Same behavior, can assign View > Notes a shortcut.
But doesn't work for View > Normal. 

See screenshot.

I am experiencing the same issue.
In the menu it allows me to assign F-keys to various views, this seems to work, but not for the normal view.

My steps to reproduce:
1. Tools->Customize
2. Assign F2 to normal-view
3. Exit menu via OK
4. change to other view, hit F2, nothing happens

I should note this does work for other views like notes, outline, notes master etc...
