TeXstudio has a live-preview feature for selections of the text. The live preview can be triggered using the shortcut Alt+p. This shortcut works perfectly on Windows, though when using it on Ubuntu it gives an error message:

The key sequence 'Alt+P' is ambiguous. Use 'Configure Shortcuts' from the 'Settings' menu to solve the ambiguity.

However, I can't find the live preview shortcut anywhere in the settings. Can anyone help with that?
