Issues setting keyboard shortcuts on Linux Mint Debian Edition


I have a completely fresh install of LMDE (XFCE) on my laptop. Virtually the first thing I did was to set up a terminal hotkey. However, I think there may be a bug in the software, because I am not able to enter a keyboard shortcut. I am just confirming here that I am not doing anything stupid.... it seems so simple!

In XFCE, I click open the menu bar, go to settings > keyboard > Application shortcuts. I then click Add, which pops up a box. In the "command" input field, I enter "xfce4-terminal". However, there is no field to enter the keyboard shortcut, or to press a combination of keys.

Can anyone confirm this issue? If not, am I doing something wrong?
