TeXstudio and a bug in Windows

The TeXstudio would like to, but Windows doesn't distinguish between AltGr+F and Ctrl+Alt+F.

On hungarian keyboards typing left bracket means to type AltGr+F or Ctrl+Alt+F. I think by this reason, but making a mistake(!) the "General text inputing" service of Windows does not distinguish between AltGr+F and Ctrl+Alt+F.

The TeXstudio, which is the best TeX IDE by my opinion, assigns the shortcut Ctrl+Alt+F to Idefix\Goto\Definition by default. This makes impossible to type in the left bracket on hungarian keyboards.

The solution is to change the shortcut of Idefix\Goto\Definition to Ctrl+Alt+Shift+F in TeXstudio's settings at menu/Preparation/Goto/Definition.

Starting with version 2.4 TeXStudio assigns the shortcut of Idefix\Goto\Definition to Ctrl+Alt+Shift+F by default.
