Let people remap shortcuts because they are bugged.

Hello there,

I'm using Lightroom in English language (mostly to follow tutorials), on a French computer / keyboard.

A few shortcuts are not possible to use because this language missmatch :

In the English version of lightroom, the shortcut "before/after only" used to disable all the develop effects which is set on the backwards slash key (\) isn't usable at all.
Pressing this key on the French keyboard does a "-0.10" exposure because it's located on the "8" key, and pressing the key where this symbol is normally placed on an English keyboad does nothing at all.

The only way to make this shortcut work is setting Lightroom in French, and using the combination of keys "Shift+S" (which is by the way absolutely not close to the English shortcut).

I found topics that are almost 10 years old where people are facing the same problem, and a simple ability to remap the shortcuts would solve the problem.

It's really frustrating to not be able to use some important shortcuts, especially because of such a silly reason, and also knowing that in the other Adobe programs, it's either possible to remap all the shortcuts, and there aren't even such compatibility problems in the first place...
