Flash MX 2004 keyboard shortcut woes

I just recently purchased 2004 Professional (the academic version) and I can’t get the align shortcuts to work…

I’ve snooped around in the forums and can’t find any similar complaints?? I’ve also modified the shortcut keys (edit->keyboard shortcuts) to some alternate sequences just for testing as well as installing the latest update but still no love. Any ideas? this is driving me crazy! Thanks a lot.


ps. the other shortcuts are working fine… I also tested them by making changes to them and trying them again, ensuring I was actually using the correct keyboard shortcuts profile.
