Note that the RichEditControl’s shortcuts should be assigned after the control is initialized (e.g. in Window.Loaded event handler).

The code sample below assigns the Alt+Y shortcut to the CreateFieldCommand, allowing you to insert a field:

private void ThemedWindow_Loaded(object sender, System.Windows.RoutedEventArgs e)
  richEditControl1.AssignShortcutKeyToCommand(Keys.Y, Keys.Alt, RichEditCommandId.CreateField, RichEditViewType.PrintLayout);

To remove a command shortcut, use the RichEditControl.RemoveShortcutKey method.
