--- Comment #4 from V Stuart Foote <vstuart.foote at utsa.edu> ---

With F5 and F11 assigned to Navigator and Styles & Formatting, would think that
using a block of Function keys might make sense.  Of course F5 in Impress is
Slide show, and Navigator there is <Ctrl><Shift>+F5

Anyhow, the entire <Atl> + Fn key block is available to use a Shortcuts (rather
than mnemonic accelerators).

Idea would be that for direct "dialog" launches" the Fn key alone (except
Impress) would launch in dialog mode (even though the underlaying code is GTK
UI in the Sidebar Deck widget).  And the <Alt>+Fn would launch into the Sidebar
deck content panel.

Default Sidebar Assignments:

So these are obvious...
Alt+F5 Navigator
Alt+F11 Styles & Formatting

Need some thought/discussion
Alt+?? Gallery
Alt+?? Properties
Alt+?? Functions
Alt+?? Master Pages
Alt+?? Custom Animation
Alt+?? Slide Transitions

And, since <Alt> is <Command> on OS X keyboards, would have to deconflict any
OS use there.  Also, have to watch out for  OS X and other non-PC keyboard
based laptops that have a <Fn> key--mainly to not use a Fn beyond 12.
