Disable Keyboard Shortcuts at gnome-terminal


It is amazing how poor or absent is the documentation at Gnome 2.x, yet it can be operated by anybody without any doubts or second thoughts. Amazing! I’ve just recently needed to disable some Keyboard Shortcuts at the gnome-terminal application. The settings can be found at “Edit | Keyboard Shortcuts…” menu option (how obvious). I very easily spotted the required command I wanted to change. By clicking at the command’s shortcut you’re given with the option of changing this option. But, how can I disable it? Searching the relevant document text, it is only mentioned how somebody can actually view this information! Unbelievable!!!


Of course, by searching a bit in Internet I’ve found that by using the “Backspace” one can actually disable a given shortcut. But, shouldn’t this info be documented somewhere inside Gnome? It’s not that special, yet nobody can imagine using this key to perform such action.
