I want to change keyboard short cut of "Open in Editor". Because I use "command+E" as different purpose. Can I change it?

    This process works for any menu item in any app:

    1. Open System Preferences and go to the Keyboard pane
    2. Go to the Shortcuts tab and choose "App Shortcuts" on the left
    3. Click the "+" button

    4. Select Marked 2 from the "Application" dropdown

    5. Type the name of the menu item exactly, being sure to match case and use a real ellipsis (Option-;) if there is one in the menu title (...)

    6. Click in the shortcut field and type the shortcut you want to use

    As a word of advice, if you're changing this because you've added a system-wide shortcut using ⌘E, be aware that using Command-[A-Z] is not a good idea for universal shortcuts. You should add Control, Shift, or Option to the shortcut to cause fewer conflicts with default application shortcuts. A shortcut such as "Control-Command-E" is far less likely to conflict.
