I hear you man. Slowly slipping further down the chair, to the point I
cannot even reach the keyboard, is the absolute highlight of my work
day afternoon.

It's downright outrageous that the Qt Creator team dare move a menu
entry by several pixels, and then have the audacity to suggest using
the keyboard.

Frankly, that they don't include a free set of physical foot pedals
for the most common actions is just inexplicable.
