When using Microsoft Word for the Macintosh version 4.0, assigning key commands using the CTRL key must be done in conjunction with the OPTION and/or SHIFT keys. In Word 5.0 the CONTROL key will work in a key combination without the OPTION and/or SHIFT keys.

Page 198 in version 4.0 of “Reference to Microsoft Word” incorrectly states the following:

If you are using a Macintosh SE or Macintosh II extended keyboard, you also can use the Control key in key combinations as you do Option and Shift. You also can reassign the function keys of the Macintosh II keyboard.

This statement applies only if used in conjunction with OPTION or SHIFT.

Many of the keys selected will either beep (an error beep, because many keys are reserved for other operations) or ask if you want to remove that combination from an already-designated key command combination.
