allow custom shortcuts, like CTRL + K + D (Visual Studio)

Why do I have to type CTRL + B + U and also CTRL + B + L to get a reformat, when I should only press CTRL + K + D (the same as Visual Studio reformat) and get all uppercase + layout ?

Am I retarded, or this makes the most sense? Why not be consistent, Redgate? OR at least allow me to customize the shortcuts...

    Thanks for your post.

    Unfortunately SSMS has reserved the combination Ctrl+K, Ctrl+D for its own (Format Document) command. I presume they're planning to implement their own formatting in a future version.

    For this reason we are unable to use it :(

    I too am looking for this feature, although, from the sounds of it, it is not possible. What about allowing a shortcut key that can do more?

    For example, if I wanted to Layout my SQL and Uppercase my keywords, it would be nice to do that in one command.... like a custom shortcut. The user can choose (under Options) what the shortcut key is and what options it will automatically perform. Like a Macro??
