Well, to make F8 and F9 work you have to keep the Character Designer  
resp. Paragraph Designer closed -- that is what you would recommend  
to authors, don't you?

With FM8.0p266 I found Ctrl+1 and Ctrl+2 to be working as expected,  
but to be able to use Ctrl+3 (Change Element) you need to have the  
Element window closed.

Ctrl+4/5/6 are used to apply some/remove some/remove all conditions  
from a text, and they seem to be not affected, maybe because there is  
no non-modal associated window available.

At least there are work-arounds...
