Bug Description

Vertical split shortcut Ctrl+Shift+E now doesn't work in Gnome, because Gnome uses it for emoji entry. To avoid conflicts, the vertical split action can be remapped to Ctrl+Shift+K.

The current shortcuts are E and O as in vErtical and hOrizontal. You can't really have V and H instead because V is the standard for pasting.

I'm wondering if there's a similarly logical choice of letters that's easy to remember, and not as arbitrary as K. I don't know.

It doesn't matter which scheme is used for shortcut as long as it is available from shortcuts help, and then it gets remembered the `vim` way - by practice.

Tilix shortcut for vertical splitting is Ctrl+Alt+R, which stands for "Add terminal right". I don't like Ctrl+Alt combination as it is hard to type with my only left hand on a notebook. Ctrl+Shift is much easier. Ctrl+Shift+R in Terminator is for "Reset the terminal". I have no idea what is it for - it does nothing when pressed.

I have no idea how often it is used. Are there any stats about Terminator shortcuts usage?
