Hmmm, I'd maybe just suggest checking in the actual jkm file that's 
associated with those particular fs scripts, and see what's really written 
in there. bottom line. that's where it's all gotta happen really.
So maybe check that script name in keyboard manager, then search for it in 
the actual jkm file which you can open in script manager if you like, or any 
text only editor like notePad etc, and insure that there's really a line in 
here, which looks identical to whatever script name the Control+P keystroke, 
is set to?
I'm not in 12 right now, so haven't chased this up at all as to exact script 
name, but I seem to remember the other caveat about these, was that they're 
set to be global, like to work across any application, if fs reader is 
loaded. is this correct? Thus, these might be residing in the default.jkm in 
order to have them do this?  Or do people think they may be being handled in 
KeyPressedEvent maybe?

Sorry I know not complete answer, but maybe it'll give you some digging 
tools to work with?
