Make keyboard shortcuts work from ANYWHERE in the interface whenever appropriate!
While it makes sense that certain keyboard shortcuts should only work when a certain part of the Premiere Pro interface is active, there are many other shortcuts that would be a lot more useful if they could be activated from anywhere in PP.
For example, PP allows us to set a keyboard shortcut for 'Transparency Grid', but unfortunately, this option can only be toggled on/off if the Source or Program Monitor is active. Why can't users toggle this on/off from the Timeline??
Another example is the great keyboard shortcut for toggling Lumetri effects on/off ('Bypass Lumetri Color Effects'). This shortcut is amazing but unfortunately it only works if Lumetri is the currently active window. Why??? This makes it impossible to use this handy shortcut in full screen view, which would be extremely useful!
Please fix shortcuts so that they can work from ANYWHERE in the user interface whenever appropriate.
I never understood why you need to select a part of the program to use a shortcut ? isn't this a counter intuitive logic ?

'Sequence Settings' is another shortcut that inexplicably only works if the Program Monitor is active. Why can't a user call up the Sequence Settings window from their Timeline???
This is bad programming, plain and simple. PLEASE fix Pr's numerous keyboard shortcut anomalies! They don't help anyone!
