It would be useful to have a shortcut key to activate track changes. MS Word and WPS Writer use Ctrl + Shift + E and i see we recently set that to the Edit > Edit Mode entry.
For me this sounds good.
Yes it was decided in the design meeting on wednesday to change this to the Ctrl + Shift + E and replace Edit Mode with a new shortcut, so i changed it to Ctrl + Shift + M.
