the shortcut for Box element selection is MAJ+E the same one as for Toggle Editmode. the wiki says for Box element selection says Shift + E.

do you have that in the English version?

Code: Select all

//===========================================================================
// Std_BoxElementSelection
//===========================================================================
DEF_3DV_CMD(StdBoxElementSelection)

StdBoxElementSelection::StdBoxElementSelection()
  : Command("Std_BoxElementSelection")
{
    sGroup        = QT_TR_NOOP("Standard-View");
    sMenuText     = QT_TR_NOOP("Box element selection");
    sToolTipText  = QT_TR_NOOP("Box element selection");
    sWhatsThis    = "Std_BoxElementSelection";
    sStatusTip    = QT_TR_NOOP("Box element selection");
#if QT_VERSION >= 0x040200
    sPixmap       = "edit-element-select-box";
#endif
    sAccel        = "Shift+E";
    eType         = AlterSelection;
}
Yes, it seems that the accelerators are Shift+B (Std_BoxSelection) and Shift+E (Std_BoxElementSelection) for the two box selections. I guess this command is loaded after the Std_Edit command, so it overwrites the accelerator.
