Shortcuts are a good idea and planned for a future version. Not using the Alt key though. Probably either using the plain key or Ctrl + key.

Not, it would not. At least not on many operating systems. There are problems in Windows, and in AmigaOS Alt + letter is processed by the OS as well and used for selecting international characters. Having Alt + letter as a shortcut would no longer allow you to enter international characters into a string gadget. -- Holger Kruse [holger--rebol--com]
