Bug Description

Some users prefer to use an alternative Latin layout such as Dvorak to increase their typing speed. Many of these users prefer to use the original Qwerty keyboard shortcuts which are conveniently positioned (e.g. Ctrl: C-Copy, V-Paste, S-Save). An option should be provided to use Qwerty hotkeys with alternative layouts.

Qwerty hotkeys are already used in the terminal and in non-latin keyboard layouts. Qwerty hotkeys were used in all keyboard layouts in the past.
