Open up Hotkeys --allow us to create our own.
I posted this request in iClone 6 and I am re-iterating it for iClone 7.

I think it would be nice to be able to assign a hotkey to the joints of an Iclone 7 Character. One think that I don't like about animating in Iclone is the fact that you have to keep selecting joints in the motion puppet tool and then going back to the window to continue animating. It would be nice if there was a way for you to be able to select the joints in a hot key type setup. I would envision it as a either having a screen where you can assign hotkeys to joints or frequently used functions, or even objects so that you can switch back and forth with ease, or a mode you can enter that's just pure animating where you could click to enter this hotkey animation mode and just use single letter hotkeys that you can arrange as you like to the joints, or you could use the Number keypad to select the joints as you assign them. That way you can keep from having to switch back and forth from window to window. I don't know about anyone else, but I like to stay in the viewport as much as possible when it comes to working with animation, I would keep it where you can assign hotkeys to:

Actors
Cameras
Joints
Props

Have it where you can save this hotkey layout so that people can create and save their own hotkey layouts that they can take with them from computer to computer. Those people that do like the hotkey setups can create their own workflows to quickly move from character to views to joints while still remaining in the view port. Again, I'm new to Iclone so if this facility already exists, I haven't found it yet.

we definitely need more hotkey customization, it drives me nuts that there isn't a hotkey for facekey. Or a hotkey to toggle from IK to FK
