Macro question

Hi all,

I would like to fill my preferences with macros for actions that I keep doing all the time. Since I do not want to overwrite existing commands and at the same time I want to have a reasonable naming scheme (e.g. If I want to cast the *d*etect monsters spell I want to somehow connect it with the d key) I thought I could use the Alt key (on a Windows system). When going to the query macro menu, I find out pressing Alt or Alt-d gives me nothing whatsoever - though Alt-F1 does. Does this mean I cannot use, say, Alt-d for a macro? Or is there someway to make the system recognize the Alt key?

For a mage, I use (pasted from my pref file)

# detect door/stair on ctrl-d
A:\e\e\em1h
C:0:^D

# detect monsters on ctrl-g
A:\e\e\em1b
C:0:^G

# detect invisible on ctrl-j
A:\e\e\em3g
C:0:^J

# detect enchantment on ctrl-l
A:\e\e\em4f
C:0:^L

# satisfy hunger on ctrl-e
A:\e\e\em3a
C:0:^E

# destroy item on floor on ctrl-k
A:\e\e\ek-y
C:0:^K

# stone to mud on ctrl-t
A:\e\e\em3c
C:0:^T

I think it is "too hard" to hook the alt-key in windows so I just use Control.
FWIW, I use F1-8 for common attack (m1a etc), 9-12 for common defence/buffing (haste self etc)
Edit: BTW, V3.0.6
