Editor plugin tools & shortcut keys

I have quite a lot of editor plugin tools and up to now have only ever added each tool to one of the toolbars. Each tool also appears under Plugins on the menu. No problems to date.

I don't normally care about shortcut keys (difficulty remembering them) but with my latest tool I thought a shortcut key might be more convenient. The default shortcut key combo I assigned (Ctrl+Alt+Shift+Z) appears in the list under
Edit > Preferences > Keyboard shortcuts > Plugins > MyUnicodeTool
and I can customise it there if I want. It has no conflicts. On the face of it everything appears OK.

However, no matter what I set the shortcut to, the tool is never run. Typing Ctrl+Alt+Shift+Z just types a Z in the editor at the current cursor position.

The tool does run OK via a toolbar button or from the Plugin menu.

I'm wondering if I have the wrong magic combination of settings in the Tool class. I currently have:
Code:
allowed_in_toolbar = True
allowed_in_menu = True

def create_action(self, for_toolbar=True):
    ac = QAction(get_icons('images/unicode.png'), _('MyUnicodeTool'), self.gui)
    if for_toolbar:
        self.register_shortcut(ac, 'get-unicode-tool', default_keys=('Ctrl+Shift+Alt+Z',))
    ac.triggered.connect(self.do_the_action)
    return ac
I have tried various variations in the 3 True/False variables above but haven't found a working combo.

I also tried installing your demo, editor_demo_plugin.zip, the Magnify Fonts tool. I had the same problem with this tool as well. Typing Ctrl+Shift+Alt+D just types a D.

Any idea what I'm doing wrong? What should the settings be to get a working shortcut? Is there some higher level config or tweak I may have unset long ago which could stop plugin shortcuts working.

In case it's relevant, other Editor standard shortcuts, like Ctrl+C, Ctrl+F, Ctrl+N, F7 (Check Book) etc work OK.

As far as I know, that should be all that is needed. You can comare it to the registering of th eshortcuts or builtin actions. Relevant code is lines 326-327 in tweak_book/ui.py and and line 86-87 in tweak_book/plugin.py
