It wouldn't hurt to mention that keyboard shortcuts can be altered at Tools/Customize. I think this will be a FAQ when .020 is mainlined because it certainly caught me off guard.

I already had to customize the Polyline tool shortcut from "G, M" to "G, G" which seems to work much better.
I would suggest another shortcut than G,G because that's already been assigned to a powerful pie menu for choosing inside sketcher. You navigate your mouse over an element and Just press G,G to see the magic.

Yeah, but I don't use the pie menu so I don't care. If I would use it, I would hope you could activate it with a mouse button somehow. I got lots of unused buttons on my mouse that Freecad could use...

What I do use is the polyline tool and having to pull my fingers from the home keys to hit the "G, M" combo is horrible, especially when you want to increment through the tools with repeated key presses.

I totally agree with you so I did change that to "A". I totally use only pie menus and A is Right on Spot for me.
