Hi all,
If, like me, you need more shortcuts in your preferred application(s) (say Swift Publisher for ex. ;^) and can't wait until a next update, you may add your own ones yourself with a little help of System Prefs:
- open System Preferences
- choose Keyboard & Mouse
- then click on the + button and add your new shortcut(s)

Exemple, I wish to add a shortcut for switching between Foreground/Background layers in Swift Publisher:
- after clicking on the "+" button, select Swift Publisher from the Application menu
- type the item menu as it appears in the target application (Foreground in this case) in the next textfield
- type the wished shortcut (I use Cmd-Ctrl-L (L for layer)) in the last textfield
- click the Add button
- add the same shortcut to the Background menu item so you'll be able to switch between the two layers using the same shortcut

Launch Swift Publisher (quit and relaunch if it is already opened).

Hope this helps.
