There is no option to set a keyboard shortcut for File>Properties.

This wouldn't normally be much of a problem for me, except for a couple of factors that combine to make it frustrating to quickly view file properties:

  • "Properties" and "Print" both share the accelerator character P.
  • Geany (or perhaps GTK?) somehow keeps track of the last menu item selected(?); so the first time I hit Alt+F, P the Properties dialog opens, but the next time the Print dialog opens instead, and so on.

​Not sure why.​

​And astonishingly all the other chars of both print and properties are
already used elsewhere in the menu.​

And things like S and O are standard and we wouldn't want to change those.

​Thats GTK, Geany only gets the menu activated​, it never sees the chars
typed.

Nor I. You can do so for (nearly?) all the others. This discrepancy is why I filed it as is; there are probably other ways to resolve the situation I described, but for one thing, changing any accelerator keys would likely require changing several of them.
