1. I would like to have a shortcut to create virtual copies.

The menu doesn't mention one, Mr. Evening's Lightroom book, doesn't. So maybe there isn't one.

Can you customize keyboard shortcuts?

2. How do you erase virtual copies? If you hit the delete button, Lightroom proposes to erase the master file. Which, of course, I do not want to. I couldn't find a "delete virtual copy" item in the menu.

I don't think that you can customize shortcuts.

If I select the virtual copy and hit the delete button, LR offers to erase the virtual copy only (Message: "Remove the selected virtual copy from from Lightroom"). Are you sure you selected the virtual copy and not the master file? Are your files arranged in a stack?

The shortcut to create a virtual copy is Ctrl-' or Cmd-'.

All of the shortcuts are on my website at www.photoshopservices.co.uk/lightroom.htm

You can't currently customize keyboard shortcuts.
