Request: Shortcut keys to change ink type #787
With the new shading ink, I might want to more quickly change between it and a more "regular" ink type. It may even be nice to have "quick" ink selection like the quick tools.
Say my current ink is Alpha Compositing. If shading is "quick" bound to C, while I hold C the current tool will use the shading ink. Upon releasing it, the current ink will change back to Alpha Compositing.
Actually there are several things that would be great to automatically configured through a keystroke. For example, brushes can be changed with Alt+1, Alt+2, etc. but I think that we should be able to bind one of these shortcuts (e.g. Alt+1) into a specific set of options.
These Alt+1,2,3,4... shortcuts should be configurable using a special UI with options like:
This might be related to #475, we could assign "macros" to keys, so steps would be something like:

Things missing to close this issue:
I'm not sure about default shortcuts to change the ink type. The preferred way to switch between brushes/ink types will be
Also, the "quick peek" behavior is a little complex to be implemented for v1.1, I think it should be separated to other issue.
