These work Ok for me in 1.4.6 and 1.5.1, except that opening Story
Editor is now Ctrl-T (which makes more sense intuitively).

The 'E' and 'T' are just from using these keys, i.e., not Shift-E or
Shift-T. Of course, the 'E' and Ctrl-T only work when you have a frame

Personally, it may be helpful to have a short list of commonly used
things like the various frames and common work on frames, but beyond
that, it's mainly worth pointing out to users that the keyboard
shortcuts show in the tooltip when possible, and also there is a list in
Preferences that you can edit to your liking, where you can also see
what operations have no default keyboard shortcut.
