Way to disable/change keyboard shortcuts in Filemaker Pro?

Post

A keyboard shortcut I use frequently in Photoshop (Command +) is the same as Replace Field Contents in Filemaker. I often switch between these two programs when entering data, and I have lost data when I have accidentally pressed the key command in Filemaker thinking I was in Photoshop. (It replaces the field contents for ALL records in the found set, and even though there is a "do you really want to do this?" dialog box, somehow I keep clicking "yes".)

Is there a way to disable this key command? I have designed a limited-access version of my DB to use when I do data entry, where I've disabled delete privileges but I still need to have edit privileges to enter data.  I don't have Pro Advanced, so I can't use custom menus. Any other suggestions for a workaround?
