comment If the 'delete' key deletes, what key inserts?
Ooh, I didn't know that. Good to know, but I failed to mention that this application is Windows only for now (however, running in VMs is a possibility). Hotkey isn't the only way to add records, so this is ok for now, but good to know.

In terms of scope, yes, Ctrl+N is used in another context to mean something else. Insert would be weird, but this is a fairly non-standard application, so adding a non-standard keybinding isn't the worst thing in the world. Thanks!

@Charles Wesley: Thanks for marking up the post with the keycap markup; I didn't know how to do it and now I know!

Delete can delete the content of the cell once it's single- or double-clicked and activated for editing (matching Excel's behavior). But if the whole row is selected (representing an object) and the user presses delete, I'd expect the object to be deleted from the model.

And assessing realistic usage probably means porting over old and hideous toolbars, as repulsive an idea as that is. Thanks, you made me swallow my pride, and that's probably a good thing.

@TotemFlare Primarily keyboard shortcuts. Great pain has been taken to keep the keyboard shortcuts as intact as possible.

This is the wordiest answer, but I think is the most clear. Thank you!
