Currently, application is not "mouseless". It increase the time to make things. E.g: "del" key at most times deletes nothing. It should assumme some default behaviour to help developers work faster, and not having to use computer mouse each time.

How to repeat:
Try to delete a table, or a column in design table. Work with workbench, at general. Most times, actions performed are "mouse-only".

Suggested fix:
- Provide most used commands with fast keyboard access (e.g. "del" key to delete, "esc" to cancel or abort, "ins" to insert new columns).

- Provide least used commands with another set of (more complex) keys. E.g: CTRL + Shift + W to select current word.
