About Document Preview: being the one who wrote and pushed that plugin, I meanwhile am a bit disillusioned about the technological approach taken there, and have been rather tempted to propose the removal of that plugin again, hoping for a future implementation on more solid ground.
While doing the documents preview plugin with KParts technology initially seemed a clever and smart idea to reuse existing code and technology, sadly kxmlgui is not prepared for the rivaling request for keyboard shortcuts both by the currently focused texteditor view as well as the requests for the same by the kparts plugin used for the type to be previewed. Which actually is an issue with toolviews with richer UI as well, but the KParts plugins living in the preview plugin just escalate this more.
I guess I should simply upload a patch to remove that plugin again separately, for a focussed discussion instead of hijacking things here. Should happen in an hour.
