[texworks] The future of TeXworks + how you can help

One idea I have for a long time is to have the poossibility 
to link keyboard short cuts to each action in TW; but to do 
this with an external list of short cuts and function's name.

This would allow the user to define his own short cuts.

Most of the users wouldn't modify the default list, however.

One can already do this, partly, with
actionSide_by_Side = Ctrl+-
in shortcuts.ini

But as Lukas Klausner did write, many thanks for this program.
