Fixing Feature #9094 (http://hub.qgis.org/issues/9094) we have implemented several shortcut changes in QGIS desktop application in order to make more agile editing geometries:

QgisApp / MapCanvas:

+ By default, 'Delete' and 'Backspace' keys are used to delete the current selected features. Now, no message for confirmation is showed (It is an undoable action), but a new status message shows the number of deleted features. 'Delete' key does the same in attribute table dialog, as heretofore.

To avoid key conflicts, we have implemented that active MapTool can override the default behavior of shortcut keys.

+ 'Ctrl+D' removes seleted layer[s] in legend. Now, it ask for confirmation because of it is not an undoable action.

Node tool:

+ 'Delete' and 'Backspace' keys delete the selected node[s]. This tool, as 'capture tool', ... override the default behavior of these keys. Also, it is automatically selected the adjacent node to last removed node.

+ '>' key activates the next node to current selected node.

+ '<' key activates the previous node to current selected node.

PR 1010 (https://github.com/qgis/QGIS/pull/1010) contains these changes.

Thank your very much!
Best regards
