I’ve seen a lot of discussions here and there about the new shortcuts (mainly panic attacks) so I think it’s good to have a dedicated thread about it.
I really like the new mode selection hotkeys, it’s a consistent way to allow access to all the different modes, and to switch between them really fast.
I have just a consideration about it: after trying a bit the new system I realized that I can’t live without the Tab key as a switch for edit mode; and it’s not only because I’m used to it, but because Tab is the easier key for me to reach from my rest position (aka fingers on shift, ctrl and z), and also because I like to have it as toggle, in order to switch back to whatever mode I was working on.
I know tab is a really good option for the search function, but maybe we could use a more standard combination like Ctrl-F?
Another smaller thing about the mode selection: it would be really nice to cycle through the sub-modes when pressing the related key (like this: “press 2” -> edit mode with previously selected sub-mode, “press 2 again” -> next sub-mode on the list).
