@stevedep This is awesome, thank you for sharing!


@stevedep thank you so very much for this!!!


Thank you so much for this! Any extra shortkey saves time.


I really do not understand why there are no shortkeys for "create measure" , "create calculated column" etc.


Does anybody know if they are planning to add shortkeys the same way as in Excel? 

(after hitting the ALT key in Excel, literally every function/formula in Excel has a shortkey, therefore I almost never use the mouse anymore in Excel. It would be great is they develop this for PowerBI as well).


How can I request such a new features>


PS I am really sorry if I post this in the wrong section. I tried to research "request new function in PowerBI" but did not find the right place to post this question.
