in settings -> editor -> edit emnu -> comment selection / uncomment selection,
if you try to change comment selection to ctrl + / (very common on other code editors)
and uncomment selection to ctrl + shift + ?
octave does not recognize these hotkey inputs and does not preform the respective action.
in fact, ctrl + shift + ? types '/' for whatever reason.

ideally, comment / uncomment selection would be replaced or added to with "toggle comments". This is a common feature in modern code editors like vscode, jeatbeans editors, and others.
