I'm not sure if this will work for Mac or Win, but under Linux hot keys
can be created or re designated, which is very helpful for getting
things done in an efficient way!

open a terminal and type:
gsettings set org.gnome.desktop.interface can-change-accels true

exit, close everything, log out, and back in again.  Now when you open GnuCash,
if you hover the mouse over any of the menu selections, you can type a shortcut 
combination, and it will "stick".  When you exit your options will be saved to
~/.gnucash/accelerator-map and you can edit by hand if you want, just don't try
while GnuCash is running, or it will overwrite your changes on exit.
