I find myself using the "About The Text..." (in Accordance drop-down menu) and "About This Text..." (by right-clicking in a given tool/text) features more and more. I don't see a keyboard shortcut for these. Is there one? If not, could one be considered as an addition?

There is an icon which appears when you mouse over the item in the Library window, now the easiest way to reach this information.

Hmm... okay. I don't usually have my Library window open, though.

Its also available on the pane's gear menu. But, as it stands there is no key command for it.

Thanks, Joel. I know you all have a lot of requests to juggle--I'm just one person, but I'd use a key command here quite a bit, if one were to be considered for future versions.

Try setting your own shortcut in System Preferences > Keyboard > Keyboard Shortcuts > Application Shortcuts (left panel)

 

Make sure to spell it exactly the same with the ellipsis [opt-;] .

Also, if you haven't used it, the app CheatSheet is pretty slick, and free (MAS).

This is great--I finally just set up this keyboard shortcut. Not sure why my Accordance crashed shortly thereafter, but all seems to be well.

 

I also used it to set up something I've wanted for some time--a keyboard shortcut for New Workspace!

You can also use something like Keyboard Maestro:
