The information in this article applies to:
- Microsoft Word for the Macintosh version 4.0


In Microsoft Word for the Macintosh version 4.0, the COMMAND key must be used in any key combination that includes a key on the main keyboard. For example, OPTION+C and CTRL+X (on extended keyboards) are illegal key assignments; however, COMMAND+OPTION+C and COMMAND+CTRL+X are allowed. Keys not on the main keyboard are allowed without a COMMAND key combination. For example, SHIFT+F8 is allowed.

This feature has been added in Word versions 5.0 and later. Word version 5.0 and later no longer require the COMMAND key to be used when assigning key commands. OPTION+C, however, is still not allowed.
