in 1.11.x you can assign hotkeys with [set_menu_item] http://wiki.wesnoth.org/InterfaceActionsWML#.5Bset_menu_item.5D.

marked as fixed.

Being able to assign/override to hotkeys beyond the numbers 1-7 would be even more amazing.

I think that it might be a good idea to make it possible to assign hotkeys (user defined, identified only as hotkey 1-7 in WML) to right-click menu items ([set_menu_item], because 7 is maximum, 7 hotkeys would fit it). The [set_menu_item] tag would get a new possible property, hotkey_assigned or something.

It would be very useful for add-ons with a more hacked gameplay, including RPG campaigns (inventory, usage of active skills), campaigns with construction (building selection) or real ranged era (or how was it called, it was about firing missiles at distance really), generally for add-ons whose gamplay requires tons of right-clicking. Instead of right-clicking somewhere and selecting the item to get into an add-on specific menu, the player would just hit a keyboard button and get into that menu.
