I have this issue too and to add this I also need to write the page number in story editor. Inside a text frame my shortcut has no effect.

I discussed this with cbradney, and apparently it's due to many window managers intercepting the shorcut. What WM are you using? I've been able to reproduce the problem on Metacity (GNOME's WM) and xfwm4 (XFCE4's WM).

My personal opinion is that the default needs to change, but cbradney did make a point boiling down to "what key combos *are* safe? Where do you stop?".

Note - for any US/Can Eng Keyboard this simply does not work.. the Alt-Graph key does not exist and no top row key has more than two glyphs.

This is now defaulting to Control-Alt-Shift-P in 1.3.0 cvs. Need to add to a menu too.
