Specify a key sequence by typing it just as you would type it to use it; for example, to specify ^A, hold down the Control key and type the letter
A specific key sequence can be bound to only one command; if you enter one that is already assigned to another command, Xcode removes it from that other command.
The video shows adding the key sequence Control-Option–Right Arrow as a shortcut for the Move Expression Right command.
