Shortcut for Synthesizer interferes with text entry

S4 - Minor

This bug comes from I'm only reporting the issue as is and as I reproduced it, but possibly other shortcut definitions affect text entry and editing as well.

1. Define a shortcut for Synthesizer as Shift-S.
2. Create a new score with title
3. Double-click title and try to enter a Shift-S. You will receive an error message (see attached).

Shortcuts not be active during text entry mode. Also the dialog window has two options: "OK" and "quit". Quit does the same thing as OK.

Also in system text and most probably other places that expect text too.

On top: you can't get rid of that shortcut other than 'reset all to default'

If you select it and press "reset to default" (top one) it does clear. I do find the interface kludgy and in need of a simplification.

Oh, yes, it is not 'rest all to default' However: 'delete' does not do what it claims to be doing, so there's a bug (another bug, unrelated to that shortcut interfering with text entry. And the interface is simple enough, Reset, delete, set to... no change needed IMHO)
