Is it possible to make this work in CafeTran Espresso too?
Yes, I would like this very much!
It would enable key sequences like ALT+V, w, 6 to quickly toggle layouts, etc.:
With AutoHotkey/AutoKey this could be further optimised to one keyboard shortcut.
Such possible implementation would lead to unpredictable conflicts.
1. Lots of ALT key shortcuts are already taken by other CafeTran actions (e.g ALT+V, ALT+P).
2. ALT key combinations (both right and left ALT on Mac) are often used for typing diacritical marks or other supplementary characters in numerous languages.
I think that after the initial period of learning to use the frequent menu actions and their corresponding keyboard shortcuts, accessing the menu is a rare operation and may be done with the mouse.
So how about a simple key command, whichever, to enter the menus to be able to continue with the arrow keys? It is all about aching or aching less due to excessive mouse use ...
On macOS this is Ctrl+2. IIRC, in Windows this is F10.
Isn't there such a keyboard shortcut for Linux Mint?
Cannot find it ...

Fn key + F10 on Linux Ubuntu.
Yes, this works in Mint too, thanks a lot!
So, no that this is clear, it should be possible to create macros that simulate Fn key + F10, P, N etc. ;)
Not very complicated, but a lot of work.
Something like this should be possible with AutoKey on Linux Mint, too.
