I really like this klipper actions, and use them also.
BUT the actions popup does not works the best. It comes sometimes when I dont 
need it, and does not come automatically when I need it. Yes there is 
shortcut to open the popup, but the problem is that the popup is not usable 
with keayboard, so it is awkward to release the mouse and use a keyboard 
shortcut to start it.

So there would be needed for any easy mouse shortcut to open the actions menu. 
Eg. the LMB could open the action menu, while the RMB could open the current 
menu (or switch the buttons).

This way there would be no need for the automatic action menu popup (at least 
not by default), and the issue would be solved...
