Understanding Send Keystrokes

Just purchased Elephant to do some more work with the Dial in Bitwig. I'm trying to use the Send Keystrokes feature with Rotation left and right to jog the transport position but not having much luck. From what I can understand in the guide, Send Keystrokes is there to replace the native Microsoft Send Keystroke you create for each application in settings? Elephant simply needs Bitwig to have focus rather than be specific to the application.

What else do I need to set here, for the following ctrl+- & ctrl++ to work. The keyboard shortcuts are set in Bitwig to move transport forward and back and work from the keyboard, but not Elephant. Thanks.

Keystroke should work, anyway the correct way for what you are doing is trough MCU mode, where you can obtain a great forward and rewind movement.
This week i can upload some guide how setup that mode.

Thanks, yes MCU mode has been working fine although I quite like using the keystroke which doesn't require MIDI to be enabled.
Since posting above I've worked out that the KEYS 1 is the keyboard shortcut to put Elephant into sending the keystrokes from moving the dial. When I posted this I was previously using ctrl+alt+shift for the Rotation Left/Right, but for a strange reason Bitwig will not respond to 3x keys from Elephant, only 2x. I've got it working now.
