There are no entries in the properties file, I just have this:
$ grep short properties
Global\ Options.last=shortcuts

In the UI for Global Options :: Shortcuts I have a few key-maps listed.
eMacs, jEdit, German, imported, IntelligJ, Mac OSX - "imported" is the one with my custom - but when I originally was creating my preferred keyboard shortcuts I just edited the "jEdit" one.

I can go in and edit the jEdit keymap again, an maybe delete these other keymaps and I see this new ./5.0.0/keymaps directory. Perhaps I can just update jEdit_keys.props with what I want?  Or if I copy ./5.0.0/keymaps/jEdit_keys.props to ./cfg/keymaps/jEdit_keys.props will my configs override the ones defined in the application directory?

For some back-story clarity, my jEdit is installed to ~/jedit which looks like this:

./4.5.0/ (prevous app dir)
./5.0.0/ (hooray jEdit 5!)
./cfg/ (the config dir)
./ (custom jedit launcher)

And my jEdit launcher does this (sets vars before, like)
exec \
    $java_bin \
    -Xmx512M \
    -jar ${jedit_jar} \
    -log=1 \
    -norestore \
    -noserver \
    -nostartupscripts \
    -reuseview \
    -settings="${jedit_cfg}" \
    "$@" \
    > ${jedit_log} \

Check your "properties" file. Are there some old .shortcut properties there that should have been removed during the upgrade process when it created the "imported" keymap?

So, I've just upgraded my primary environment for using jEdit 5.0.0, updated my plugins too

I've lost one keyboard shortcut however.  CTRL+L used to jump to a line for me.

I have the definition in ./keymaps/imported_keys.props:

All the other keyboard shortcuts work as expected, just CTRL+L has stopped - ideas?  I don't see other shortcuts that conflict with it.
