In the UV/Image editor, in the Image Menu, every option such as Reload image has a shortcut, except for Replace image.
So I've tried to add a shortcut in the preferences, right under where I found "Reload Image" shortcut, then saved the user settings. All was done just as the manual said, but it is not working.
How can I add this shortcut?

NOTE: the shortcut name 'Replace Image' will come up automatically

To know what to type for the shortcuts use the tooltips :

    $\begingroup$ This was flagged as low quality. I agree to a degree, but not enough to recommend deletion, though I think an explanation on how to access the setting in the image would be in order. $\endgroup$ – user7952 Mar 2 '15 at 0:15
