Bug Description

I would be nice to have a shortcut to open the part datasheet when available.
I think "D" over the part is my suggestion. If it doesn't have a datasheet field don't do anything.

I found this: https://bugs.launchpad.net/kicad/+bug/1723104
So, it is just a matter of adding a shortcut now.

I'd like to save 'D' for drag-wire-keep-slope (to be consistent with PCBNew). I'll use ctrl-D instead (the user can always edit them anyway).

Ah, ok. Maybe Ctrl+D is a good alternative.
