Summary

Missing Keyboard Shortcuts with Standard menu on Custom Menu set

Description of the issue

When using a custom menu set, the keyboard shortcuts for copy and paste don't all work...even when using the default "edit copy" menu.  The problem is that the menu recognizes CTRL-C and CTRL-V, but it does not recognize the commonly used (in Windows) CTRL-Insert and Shift-Insert.  I have had many users report copy/paste problems after I implemented a custom Records or File menu, not knowing that FileMaker only recognizes the standard Windows commands when using the 'Standard FileMaker Menus' set.  This *constantly* bites me, too, while I am developing. A similar issue is on the Delete Record command, where CTRL-Shift-E can no longer be used to delete a record without a dialog.
