HighlightUsages keyboard commands don't make sense

"Use Shift+Alt+F11 (HighlightUsages), to easily see usages of a variable or another  symbol.

Use Ctrl+Alt+Up and Ctrl+Alt+Down to navigate between highlighted occurences.

Press Escape to remove the highlighting."

Why would the commands to navigate be Ctrl+Alt, when the command to activate is Shift+Alt? Both should be the same either Ctrl+Alt or Shift+Alt, not mixed usages.

Hello Chris
     You can use Ctrl+Alt+Up/Down to navigate between usages after performing Find Usages (Ctrl+Alt+F7) as well. Anyway, you can easily configure the shortcuts under Tools | Options | Environment | Keyboard, so that they match your scenarios best. Thank you!
