Yes I know about assigning a different hotkey, but that's what I'm saying - I'd prefer to do everything from the Toolbar and not have to map another key shortcut. Global key shortcuts are not easy to find that won't interfere with other apps/functions, plus there are other tools besides yours that need global shortcut keys as well.
What I'm asking for is a way to access the three icons on the right without using the mouse. I just suggested Tab since that is universally used in UI design to move focus amongst other control groups.
The flow I was suggesting was: open the Toolbar, if nothing is typed then Tab to put focus on the Favorites icon, and enter to open it. Or use right arrow instead of Tab. Whatever. I just want to be able to access those buttons without having to use the mouse.
As it is, I have not found a way to access those icon functions with the keyboard. If I could, I would not need to map another key.
And I just realized you can customize that menu too - really need keyboard access to navigate it!
I thought I found a way thru menu customization to set a hotkey to the Favorites folder (in the Favorites menu customization), so I mapped it to ctrl-F, but found that you are making those hotkeys global (versus being active only while listary is open). So it's the same problem.
