The F8 key will work for text object. But I would like a single key that will work for all the objects.

For example, if I have selected an object and I want to edit it. I have to press F4 if the type of the selected object rectangle and F8 if the type is Text.

Whereas mouse double click recognizes the object type and appropriately invokes the corresponding tool.  I just want the invoke the double click functionality using the a single key that will work for all the objects.

This functionality is already in inkscape. For text nodes: press F8,
this opens the text tool.
