Remap keys 
OK 
Cancel 
Select the key you want to change (Key) and then the key or shortcut you want it to become (Mapped To). 
For example, if you want to press A and get "Ctr/+C", key "A " would be your "Key" column and the shortcut "Ctrl+C" 
would be your "Mapped To " column.

▲If you input the key on the left, it works like the right. I tried mapping A to B experimentally.
