Summary0003991: FAR 3.0.6116: Replace dialog - default historical hotkeys are changed
DescriptionSince a 6116 default hotkeys on Replace dialog a changed.

Previous one was:
R{e}place with: [____________]

I always use Alt+R to start Replacing. It is a common combination for many years.

Now we have in dialog:
{R}eplace with: [____________] - Alt+R now move to the field
[Replace] - no any hotkey at all!

Why the historical hotkeys, so important, are changed? It is broken UX, broken compatibility.
Just one person in a ticket decide to change a common hotkeys and... changed them.
Userbase of the FAR? Not important :(

What was the reason/idea to remove them? They did not conflict with something other.
It is a change for the function that is historical, it is in habits for many users
