That was me:)  <Ctrl>+F would be a good replacement.
But what about plain F

Ctrl+F would be more consistant

That's one problem with standards (UI or otherwise).  
Why shouldn't my graphics application use [a-zA-Z] as 
efficient, intuitive shortcuts, just because a word 
processor can't?  Solidworks (a mid-range CAD program) 
has a great set of default bindings that make it nice to 

f  zoom full (view all or <ctrl>+a in Dia)
w  zoom window
p  pan
z  zoom out (Dia uses -)
Z  zoom in (Dia uses = (unshifted +))
b  back (last view coordinates and zoom level - a 
feature I'd love Dia to have, BTW)
et cetera

I've assinged as many logical, single key shortcuts to 
Dia functions as Dia will allow.  Unfortunately, that's 
not all of them.

I'm looking forward to your work.  More key bindings are 
better than fewer.  But please take care to reassign 
shortcuts, not just replace them.
