Bookmarks are cool.
Do they stick around when you close and re-open a file?

While configurable keys are good, the example you're showing already
highlights the drawbacks of the approach you (and too many other pieces
of software) are using: Why force users to choose between F3 and Ctrl+K
for the "Move to next find" function, when you could assign the function
to /both/ keys?

(And no, computer games' half-assed approach of providing /two/ key
bindings per function doesn't nail it. I'd love to see a genuine 1:N
mapping, as supported e.g. by Microsoft Word. Don't tell me Microsoft
can create better UIs than you ;))
