Thank you. That solved my problem.
I simply overlooked that GUI based bind editing is now possible.

buffer-view pdf2

did the trick.

 You should use buffer-view in place of buffer-export. But rather than
 messing with .bind files, you should use LyX  Preferences  Editing 
 Shortcuts and define shortcuts there. (Search for buffer-view.)
 
 One further question: To keep all other shortcut settings as is default on

 Yes.

 If the .bind file will load, it won't affect stability. But if you
 improperly define the .bind file, it won't load. That's partly why
 it's better to use the GUI for modifying shortcuts (which was
 introduced in LyX-1.6.0, I believe).
