Verified that a default shortcut, such as Ctrl+Q for Quit, can be cleared and that the shortcut then performs no action.

Marking as Fixed and closing report.

I just discovered that the test for duplicate shortcuts was broken. I already have a solution but won't be able to prepare the patch (together with the graft) before tomorrow evening. Is this still in time for the 9.1.90 release candidate?

Thank you for the fix. 👍

If it is just about the untranslated "Clear" button (and if there is low risk of other regressions by this change), I'd say: IIUC, this fixes a regression from Octave 8. So imho, you could go ahead and graft the change to the stable branch (leaving the new button un-translated).

I pushed cset http://hg.savannah.gnu.org/hgweb/octave/rev/531d4ae37c60 to the default branch. The patch should solve the issue. I have set the status to "Ready for Test", because I am not sure whether we should graft the patch to stable. There is a new "Clear" button in the dialog for editing shortcuts for which a translation would be missing.

If an Action has a default keyboard shortcut, there is currently no way to unbind any keyboard shortcut from that action.
If the shortcut is deleted in the edit window, the default shortcut is used again.
