Shortcuts to be included in the next release. Please take a look how other GIS software (e.g. gvSIG, QGIS) have currently included them in order to make easier the user also the work with gvSIG CE. Some of the shortcuts listed below are functionalities that aren't in gvSIG CE but exist in other Desktop GIS. I've listed them in order to consider it for next releases or to find the best shortcut for existing ones.
