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.)
Looks like no one came up with a similarly good shortcut as the old
one. That might not be too surprising. Unfortunately, it will leave
macOS users in the dust with the next major version.
I myself tend to set Ctrl-I for emphasis, which is what most
applications use. Of course, they mean "Italic", not emphasis, but it's
what I'm used to.
