Maven Projects - "Assign shortcut" always disabled

Guys, I'm trying to assign a shortcut for a maven lifecycle in "Maven Projects" tool window.
I can not do this because "Assign shortcut" menu is always disabled.

I hit this in both Idea 13 and 14EAP. My current project is multi-modules one, and I remember I once got it working when I had a project with one module (I had to rename the module with the same name as the project to get it working).
Is this a limitation or a bug? The official documentation does not mention anything related:

The most likely cause is that you have a default keymap selected. You cannot edit a default mapping. Go to File > Settings > [IDE Setting] > Keymap. With the desired default keymap you want to use as the base for your custom keymap, click the "Copy" button, give it a name and save it. You should now be able to assign shortcuts.

Thanks Mark but this is not my case. I'm already using copied keymap.

I'm pretty sure this is connected with the naming of project or its modules, as once I think I got it working via renaming them.
Just wanted to check with the community if this is known problem. I'll investigate further this week and I'll file a bug if needed.

I figured it out - for some reason the maven project was marked as "Ignored".
I'm wondering if there is more usable way IDEA to denote such projects - now they are with the same font as regulat projects, except the color is slightly lighter.

Anyway I'm closing this question.
