¿How does the Blender User achieve a shortcut for custom operator in Pose Mode?


An operator was created and is functional for the past hour or so. A Shortcut Key was desired. The operator name appears in [pose mode] menu Pose. Operator use with the mouse is successful. Attempt is made to create short cut with the Add Shortcut menu depicted below. Key Binding does not appear which is a problem. Key Binding = Shortcut in this description.

Other investigations, attempts and successes

Key binding in [object mode] is successful. Operator use is successful in menus. Specials Menu and Python Console and Python dir command.

Key Binding attempted in [Pose Mode] creates Key Binding in [Object Mode]

Manually employ User preferences will do the job. Settings below. This is not the only method. Complications will be in a different question.
