keybindings to external tools

How do I set a keyboard shortcut to an external tool?  They don't seem to show up in the menus where I'd otherwise set key shortcuts.

(On a slightly different topic, all external tools I've defined so far are things that run tests.  pycharm's notion of "run tests" seems to be either too smart or too stupid for this project.)

Hello Kevin,

Once you've created an external tool action, go to File | Settings | Keymap and configure nescessary shortcut for launching it.

Best regards,

I go to Settings / Keymap, and open Main Menu / Tools, and the group I put my tools in (which I called "tests") shows up as a folder there, but there doesn't appear to be anything *in* that folder I can select and assign keybindings to.

Hello Kevin,

Indeed there some problems in displaying these actions, however have you tried typing desired action name in search field?

Best regards,

Oleg
