I'm also used to CTRL+SHIFT+Z and I like it but if CTRL+Y is the
"standard" shortcut we should consider using it at least as second
shortcut. I don't know Gnome (only GIMP which uses CTRL+Y) and I don't
I attached a patch which fixes some kdeui widgets to use KStdAccel. So
- CTRL+SHIFT+Z for redo AND
- CTRL+A for select all
in the RMB menus.
Some people wrote that they don't like CTRL+Y for redo as it would
"steal" one free shortcut. This is not true as Qt already uses CTRL+Y.
Some apps (i.e. KMail) use the deprecated KEdit which even hardcode
CTRL+Y to copy (yank) and CTRL+K to cut (kill) but display CTRL+Y for
redo what is definitely a bug.
