Update of bug #41180 (project octave):

        Operating System:       Microsoft Windows => Any                    


Follow-up Comment #1:

Ehm .... "...Should be..." ?
Who says what key bindings "should" have what functionality?

Just to put things in the proper perspective, the goal of the Octave project
(the way I see it) is not to make a free (as in "free beer"), 1:1 Matlab clone
out of Octave and blindly copy the GUI + look and feel.
Matlab compatibility in the sense of .m-files etc. running without (too many)
changes is indeed an Octave project goal.

With that confusion out of the way, it may be (just a guess) that the GUI
developers first want to implement configurable key shortcuts before adding
other functionality.
The things you mention are already in the picture.

As to F9, 2 minutes ago it still worked for me ;-)

The "evaluate section" is a little more complicated.
Octave (also) recognizes '#' for comment lines and in fact, Octave's coding
style prescribes '##' (double hashes) to start comment lines.
So we'd first have to think up a way to properly implement sections so that it
works with the Octave coding style.

(operating system set to "any" as key bindings aren't limited to Windows)
