hi all,

I'm using LyX Version 2.2.3 Windows 10.
From some reason the keyboard shortcuts are not shown in the different menus. 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 menus
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)
thanks

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.

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.
