Add a keyboard shortcut and a toolbutton for Export functionality

Please add a keyboard shortcut and a toolbutton for the Export functionality. I use the likewise context menu very often to produce PDF files.

A good choice would be Ctrl-E / ⌘-E, which seems to be currently unused.

The toolbutton should maybe follow the semantics of the "Export PDF..." ToolButton of LibreOffice.

TIA for considering this suggestion,



Ctrl-E is currently used to enter the edit mode of the selected element.

You can set your own shortcut for that command though, it simply doesn't have one by default:
1. Go to EditPreferences
2. Go into the Shortcuts tab
3. Locate and highlight the Action called Export score (you may use the search field at the bottom of the dialog to make this easy)
4. Click on the Define… button
5. Type your desired shortcut (Alt+Shift+E is still available) and click on the Add button
6. Click on OK in the preferences dialog and test your shortcut out

The shortcut hint should now also be shown in the menu.
