Hi Jan,

What version are you using? We were having this problem but as far as
I know I fixed this...

This is probably a good idea. Some of the command names don't make a
lot of sense...but the advantage of having the command name there is
that you can consult the manual and find out what it does. If you just
have a text string then it's difficult to tell what command the
keystroke is actually calling. If you want to slightly modify a key
binding it is helpful to know what command a keystroke
calls. Nevertheless, a text help string could be nice...

I'm not sure if I'm going to be adding this any time soon, but your
suggestion has been noted :).

You're welcome! I'm glad you like it!
