GUI for keybindings

Is there a GUI for setting keybindings? For years on CB++ I've used lxhotkeys which makes it super easy to delete and add new keyboard commands.

I've tried making direct changes to the .xbindkeysrc via the backup and edit link on the right click jgmenu but even after a restart the changes don't take hold.

As a simple example of what I want to do, I want to change the dmenu command to "dmenu_run -b" with the bindings Alt + space (I know that's a clash with something else but I've tried other combinations too without any luck).

Either way, a GUI alternative would be far preferable.

Thanks for any help.

Re: GUI for keybindings

There is a GUI for xbindkeys but last time I looked it was buggy and broken. There is another GUI, aka the text editor wink 

xbindkeys needs to be restarted after editing the keybind. If there is a keybind clash then it may not work.
