When I long press super key in Ubuntu, it's displayed a list of keyboard shortcuts used in unity. I would like to know if it's possible to edit the content of this window to display something different of keyboard shortcuts (for example codes used in my job that I use often).

Is the content of keyboard shortcuts windows stored in some text file? Or is it stored as a image? Would I be able to edit it to display anything I want?

Cool idea, but I don't think its possable. – Seth Dec 3 '12 at 0:49

@EricCarvalho: For what it's worth, I think it should be left open. – Flimm Jan 11 '13 at 23:16

This is currently not possible unless you edit the source code of Unity and implement it yourself.
