I am probably one of the biggest fans of the introduction of the highlight shortcut keys. I make extensive use of highlighting and the shortcut keys make the process tons quicker.

However, it is very easy to inadvertently make a highlight (or accidentally make the wrong highlight). And there is no way (that I know of) to quickly delete a highlight without opening the highlight panel and manually clicking the delete button.

Can you either

  1. make the "delete" button the default shortcut key for the delete highlight function OR
  2. allow us to assign a custom key for the delete highlight function

You can press Ctrl+Shift+K to delete a highlight (if text still is selected).

Or if you select it subsequently.

Yeah, but it's such a difficult key-combo (requires the use of my mouse hand) that a custom shortcut would be welcome.

I forgot about Crl-Shift-K. Thank you.
