"Standard" user-friendly GUI

I would like to request the implementation of “standard” user-friendly GUI features:

–Alt-keys open menus (i.e. Alt-F for the File menu) --Keystrokes select menu items once the menu is open (i.e. “o” for Open, after Alt-F) .

–Shortcut keystrokes for the View (Geomagic Design uses Ctrl+1,2,3,4 etc…)

–Add the default extension (.form) to a file name automatically. (I just saved a file and it had no extension…)

–Escape key should close dialog boxes.

I am sure there are others, but I am really surprised at how many standard GUI keystrokes are missing, given how simple they are to add. Thanks.

I’d like to add a request for configurable keys as a long-term suggestion. I know that is a big wish, but lately I’m moving between Maya, Blender, Preform, Meshlab… none of them has the same mouse/view/scale/pan controls. it is almost maddening. 3ds Max, Maya, and Blender are configurable - Meshlab is not as far as I can see. If Preform could eventually offer mappable keys for basic functions it would make working across multiple tools much saner
