Note: For Compound key combinations, that is, those combinations that utilize two letters

(eg Ctrl+K+I), you need to press the modifier-keys with the first letter, quickly followed by the
modifier-keys and the second letter.

For example, to indent a block of text, the shortcut is Ctrl_K+I, which should be implemented as
Ctrl+K quickly followed by Ctrl+I.
