There have been a lot of feature requests for more keyboard shortcuts over the years, and many have been added, but there are only so many that can be assigned before one runs out of easy to use shortcuts.

For example, Ctrl+E might be your preferred choice for Editing glyph names, but it is already assigned to Export Settings (the Help file is out-of-date here). Ctrl+Shift+E is also already taken.

Making shortcuts editable is perhaps the best way to please the most users, but it has not happened yet after many years. I don't see it happening. Only a year ago, I suggested it, but Erwin said that it was not feasible.
