Ah, that's not good!  Thanks for pointing that out.  Do you happen to
have any suggestions as to what default short cut keys should be for the
Hungarian locale?  For the US English locale and several others I tested
I followed Excel's short cuts for the reason of familiarity.

Yup.  The category definitely needs to be revised, for sure.  IIRC
command's categories are defined in the helpcontent xml files, so we'll
just need to find where it's defined and change it there, or if it's not
defined yet (which is more likely) we need to add an entry for this
feature with a more appropriate category.

Anyway, good findings. :-)
