Notes:

You can find a list of all hotkeys/shortcuts also in the XnView Help (press F1 in XnView to show).

If you want to support Custom Hotkeys/Shortcuts, you can do it in that topic.

You can make requests for new hotkeys and shortcuts in that topic, or you can create a new topic (for larger requests).

Before posting a request please check in that topic and make sure that it hasn't been requested before and whether this hotkey/shortcut is not reserved for another option (above).
