The shortcuts for a particular system are shown with an underline in the main menu entries. Since different Operating Systems and the user’s chosen language may cause Subsurface to use different shortcut keys, they are not listed in this user manual.

I do not completely understand your question. Is your statement there are underlines in the menu and the manual is silent about shortcuts?

These shortcuts are one thing that I continuously keep forgetting to look into: I have the impression that at least on Mac, the shortcuts disappear when running Subsurface in German. Unfortunately, changing language settings on Mac needs a reboot. So I cannot simply check… Has anybody else encountered this? And what could be the reason?
