This is functionality that is well implemented in Tradestation and will take the usability of the software to  a new level.
I suggest making this in the same way as in Tradestation so that all commands and all meny commands can be set to a function key or a keyboard shortcut. For example I would like to use a function key to change Study properties - or to run the Strategy Performance Report - or to take up Quote Manager etc etc.

My preference is the ability to assign a function (any menu item for
example) to a key sequence.  Obviously, there would be a limited number
of key sequences made available for customization, but this would allow
the user the ability to set the function he or she uses most. For
example: i never want to reload all data. I'd love to set ctl + R to
execute reload 1 week.
