Display of shortcuts in the menus is hit and miss at best. In LyX 2.3.0
(on Linux), I get shortcuts for most of the entries in the Edit menu but
only one in the Insert menu. That said, if you're missing shortcuts for
entries where other people see them, that's a bug.
I'm using LyX Version 2.2.3 Windows 10.
From some reason the keyboard shortcuts are not shown in the different
and i can see in screenshots and tutorial of other users that they did
appear in the menus.
i couldn't find any option in the preferences to show shortcuts in the
and couldn't find any answer in the archive nor in the wiki docs.
hope you can help me with that
(it's grueling to google every shortcut)
Meanwhile, I can suggest a partial workaround (that might let Google
catch its breath). In LyX, click Tools > Preferences... > Editing >
Shortcuts, which will display a list of the shortcuts defined in the
bind file you are using. You can leave the dialog open while you are
editing a document. The "Show key-bindings containing:" box will let you
search either by key combination (enter "Ctrl + M", find out it's bound
to math-mode, which starts an inline equation) or by function (enter
"math-mode", find out the shortcut is "Ctrl+M"). The latter part is not
entirely helpful if you don't know what the LyX name for the function
is, but worst case you can enter a partial name for the function (say,
"math") and get a list of possibilities. It won't necessarily keep you
away from Google entirely, but it might help.
Also, if it's any consolation, the shortcuts you use most often will
eventually stick in memory.
