> editing text with a LaTeX editor should be a natural thing. And it works well with the keyboard. Unfortunately I need the mouse to use the menus of TeXworks. When I press alt-f, the character f is inserted in the document. Pressing and releasing alt moves the focus to the menu bar. Here I can navigate with the arrow keys and use the menu.

Would probably break things on the Mac on non-US keyboard, since Alt-key is used to access some non-ascii characters and even some ascii characters. For example œ = Alt-o on the French keyboard, and ~ = Alt-n-Space.
