EPDM Add-In Keeps Reassigning My SolidWorks Keyboard Shortcuts

Hi Guys,


I'm having trouble with the SolidWorks EPDM add-in reassigning EPDM related keyboard shortcuts.  I've been having this problem since we implemented EPDM 2012 last year.  We are now on SolidWorks 2013 SP3.0 (Windows 7 Pro SP1 64 bit) and EPDM 13.03.0815 and I'm still having the same issues.


To give a summary of the problem, I want to assign the following keyboard shortcuts to EPDM related functions:



Unfortunately I seem to only be able to assign the shortcuts to either a part document or an assembly document, but not both.  When they are correctly assigned to one document type they work just fine for that document type only.  When I go to the other document type and view keyboard shortcuts, there are not assigned.  When I try to assign them I get the following error:



If I say yes to this dialogue, then I lose my keyboard shortcut for the other file type.  Why can I not have these EPDM related keyboard shortcuts apply to all SolidWorks document types?


I was unable to find anyone else in the forums with similar issues but I have a hard time believing I'm the only one that wants to customize the EPDM keyboard shortcuts.  The closest issue I could find was the following post that detailed manually editing the copy settings wizard output file to restore a SolidWorks default keyboard shortcut behavior:

Thanks in advance,
