With LyX 2.4, the shortcut for toggling emphasis will be changed from
Command+E to Command+Ctrl+E. I find that latter shortcut quite hard to
use (there is a reason why Alt+Ctl+Delete are the "Security Keys") while
emphasis is maybe my single most used function with a shortcut (after
cut, copy, paste). So, this cumbersome shortcut is quite annoying to me.
Of course I can easily change the shortcut myself via the settings and
fix the problem for me. But I am wondering whether there is a better
shortcut for this by default. The developers have not come up with ideas
so far or do not see the problem as severe. So, I am wondering whether
someone on the users list has an input on this.
As a background: In LyX 2.4, the Command+E shortcut is currently
assigned to set the search string on macOS. (A feature of macOS that
some applications support but I was unaware of previously and I know no
one else who uses it. I guess that is generally true and why it took so
long until someone came up with introducing it in LyX.)
