From the Tools Menu you can select Keyboard Layout, and then Customize. The keyboard short cut to customizing the keyboard is option H. To make changes to the keyboard layout, you will need to unlock the keyboard, by clicking on the lock in the lower left corner. Next you will want to select the keyboard combination. At the top of the keyboard layout are the modifier combination's. These tell us what modifier keys need to be depressed with the operative key to cause a result. We see that under the no modifiers tab the only unassigned key is the Y key.

To the right hand side of the keyboard layout we see the menu categories. We can open these up to locate a function, or we can type the function into the search window. Once we have located the function we wish to assign to a key, we just drag it onto the key we wish to assign it to. You can use an open key, or you can overwrite a key that is currently assigned to something else. Here we have assigned the Add Edit function to the Y key.

Be careful when you are making changes to the keyboard layout on a machine that others use, because this can really become confusing to someone that isn't aware that the keyboard layout has been changed.
