IMPORTANT NOTICE: The old IceWMCPKeyEdit tool has now been merged with the IceWMCPKeyboard Tool. The stand-alone version of IceWMCPKeyEdit has been discontinued and has been given 'unmaintained' status. All future development of IceWMCPKeyEdit will take place in the IceWMCPKeyboard Tool module project. From now on, you should visit the IceWMCPKeyboard Tool page for the latest information on the development of IceWMCPKeyEdit. Also, an embedded version of IceWMCPKeyEdit still remains the shortcut editor of IceMe. The 'help' file for IceWMCPKeyEdit still remains below for your convenience.
