The shortcut key combination for Hide particles doesn't work for me. The actual Hide particles menu option performs the function properly when using the mouse. I haven't found any other mention in the forums or via Google so it may be my set up, Fedora distro, Gnome, etc. Wondered if anyone else can confirm.

My info:

Sadly, many shortcut keys (all the ones using the upper row of the keyboard keys, i.e. "1" to "=") are unsuitable for anything else than QWERTY keyboards with English system locale. This is in no way a bug, but just a known limitation. Be also wary of your Gnome keyboard shortcuts that may conflict with other applications (SL viewers included).

I might add a Lua function to toggle render debug features, which would allow to setup a side bar button for them, for quick access...

Fortunately I do meet the QWERTY and English locale conditions. Indeed, all of the other render debug options work just fine (1-0 and \). I have verified that the default keyboard shortcuts (that I can see/configure), do not have the 4 key combo in question. I wondered/speculated if the problem could have anything to do with the setting being available in more than one menu. It seems to be the only render option like that.

This isn't a big pain point though. I can click a menu item via mouse fairly easily. I just happened to stumble upon it when I was in a heavily particled area when I wanted to quickly toggle them and thought I would mention it here.
