I have an application with a standard data grid in which each row represents an object.
Our current application uses F6 and F7 for add and delete, respectively. I'd like to keep these around for our legacy users but also would like to wean the user off of them over the next few versions and into the more "traditional" keys for inserting a new row and deleting the selected row. The key for deleting the selected row should, of course, be Delete.
But what key binding to use for insert?
The Insert key would make sense, but I've only used it to toggle between insert and replace mode when editing text. I don't know that I've ever seen it used to actually indicate that a new entry should be inserted. The only other meaning I can think of for the Insert key is in the old(er)-school keybindings for cut and copy, but Ctrl+X and Ctrl+C have pretty much taken over the world.
