I don't like the control-L key for the location window, and generally using
the control key for dialog shortcuts. I always liked to be able to toggle
the config window using 1 while keeping my other hand on the mouse. I
think a control key combination is less comfortable.
Maybe the F keys would be good for dialogs? Something like
F1 - help
F2 - config
F3 - search
F4 - display options
F5 - calendar / date
F11 - toggle full screen
I like most of the other bindings from 0.9.x. What do you think?
From a windows user standpoint, that list makes a lot of sense. F11 is a traditional fullscreen toggle. Separating the window keys from the buttons on the keyboard like we do in the interface sounds logical.
Some keystrokes don't work in the last svn version. I noticed S doesn't toggle stars for instance.
