Re: menu accel conflict with entry

that somebody would want their keystrokes in an
entry box stolen by the menu accelerator.  Should
I report this as a bug (or enhancement request)?

There is no easy way I know of to make 'n' an accelerator and have it passed to an entry as well. You will probably have to add a modifier like "<Alt>" to fix the problem.

There may be some way to remove your entry field from the application's accelerator group, understanding that none of the application's accelerators will then work in the entry field.
