Web UI Hotkey(shortcut key) Support

In the pursuit of a feature rich Web UI, we looked to the interfaces of popular websites.  As web applications have become more mature, they have acquired many desktop experience-like properties that we find desirable in our application.    One feature in particular that has gained popularity in recent years is the ability to use shortcut keys on a webpage.  This is different from being able to use shortcut keys in the browser, as this is adding the ability to use shortcuts to interact with page elements.

Using its modern web technology stack, Olympus now supports basic Hotkeys.  Currently plugin windows are able to be opened using Shift+plugin_number where plugin_number is a number key, and they are able to be closed using Ctrl+Shift+plugin_number.  Hotkey support is being expanded for more functions within the app, so check back soon for updates.
