I created a macro that added tolerance to a dimension selected by user. 

The workflow is as follow: 

   1) Select a dimension

   2) Run the macro


The macro work fine from the command button and even mouse gesture. 

However, when i assign it to a keyboard shortcut with [ALT] modifier (eg: [ALT] + [T]), the macro could not work. 

Surprisingly, when i assign the macro to keyboard shortcut with other modifier (eg: [SHIFT] + [T] or [CTRL] + [T]), the macro seem to work just fine. 


Any idea why the macro could not be assign to the keyboard shortcut with [ALT] modifier?
