Summary: Bind Ctrl+Y as redo

Initial Comment:
Every other program I use has Ctrl+Y as redo: Eclipse, Gimp, Chrome, Firefox, Open Office, etc.  This makes it very frustrating that it's Ctrl+Shift+Z in RKWard.   I think that allowing both to work as redo would be a good solution.

We are rather conservative when it comes to assigning shortcuts, since it
is all too easy to create conflicting shortcuts (shortcuts assigned to more
than one action) in the various user setups. The Ctrl+Shift+Z shortcut for
Undo is the standard in KDE, which RKWard is based on.

You can configure the shortcut yourself in RKWard (Settings->Configure
Shortcuts, or click the right mouse button on Edit->Redo). You can even set
Ctrl+Y as the default shortcut in *all* KDE applications: Run
"systemsettings", and select Computer Administration->Keyboard &
Mouse->Standard Keyboard Shortcuts.

Of course you may want to request Ctrl+Y as a default (alternate) shortcut
for redo in the KDE bug tracker (http://bugs.kde.org). However, for RKWard,
we will continue to use the system default, wherever possible. Therefore,
I'm closing this request.
