Re: [PATCH] new menu accelerators in the Place menu


Good morning,

let's sat that we change ctrl-alt-L to Alt-K we still have three more
conflicts: P, H, T.

the following keys needs to be replaced because they are already
assigned to Place, Help and Tool

Any suggestion? Once I change these 3 too, the correspondent  hotkeys
will be different too..... Are we all cool with that?

Are we sure that we want to go a head with this? What we are doing
here is drawing a difference between hotkeys and accelerators which
maybe many future users will not get and which I am not sure we should
be doing.
