Flag option keyboard shortcuts

Currently you have the following options in Lightroom CC to add flags:

Unflagged  - U
Pick - Z
Reject - X

In Lightroom Classic I remember that if you were adding to the Quick Collection with the keyboard shortcut 'B' you could remove it by also pressing 'B'.

When adding flags you now need to unflag by pressing 'U'.

I think it would be great to add the ability to reverse the flag action if the keyboard shortcut is pressed for the second time on that specific image or at least have it as a customisable option.

Try the ` key to toggle Unflagged/Picked.

I'm unable to get that to work. Guessing you press that key after it is flagged? I've also tried it without and in combination with the 'Z' key. What OS are you using?

I still think that it doesn't make too much sense as if you press the 'Z' key the second time you will get the message "Flag as Pick" the second time. The image is already marked as such so I don't think you should get the message again. I think it would be better to remove it on the second press.

Doh, that was working in a previous release. 

There has been some debate over removing on the second press, but it was too easy to accidentally unflag photos, for example, when you were looking back through photos you'd already partially flagged.
