Shortcuts and Keyboard Navigation

Hey, Just discovered this software and think it's great. However the lack of shortcuts and ability to navigate with the keyboard is painful and really slows my workflow down. Can you not implement shortcuts for each new entity? Also the ability to edit events quickly with shortcuts would be great eg. ctrl + a jumps to the arc section, ctrl + l location, ctrl + p jumps to the participant section, ctrl + o observers etc.

Navigating the Manage Entities Window with the keyboard would also be really handy

In the app "Things" you can move items up and down using command and arrow buttons, could do the same thing for ordering entities. And then up and down arrows for navigating between entities. Some command for jumping between the arc, place, character sections. And then something like cmd shift m so you can get back to the side menu after creating/editing a entity so you can create/edit another one.

Another keyboard request: when syncing a project with Scrivener it would be good if when you're in the "warnings" or "events" tabs if you could hold down the shift key so you can select multiple events/warnings then right click and choose the same action (e.g use timeline details, create new document in inbox etc) rather than having to right click each one individually

Hi, Thanks for these suggestions, we have had requests for more control over keyboard shortcuts before, and we will add these to the list to consider in the future. Jess
