customizing keyboard shortcuts in mysql workbench  using -'mysql,keyboard-shortcuts,customization,mysql-workbench'

Having spent a number of years working primarily with MS SQL Server (and hence SQL Server Management Studio for common tasks), I am now beginning to work with MySql. To date I have been using MySQL Workbench and am generally happy with it.

I would, however, like to be able to assign custom keyboard shortcuts for certain commands (e.g. commands from this list). For example, I'd prefer to stick to the MS-SQL approach of 'F5' to execute queries, rather than hitting 'Modifier+Return'. I haven't yet come across a simple way to do this. My questions are then:

Is this possible somehow in MySQL Workbench (e.g. additional plugin)?
If not, do any of the alternatives to MySQL Workbench offer this functionality?


Ubuntu 12.04 LTS, 32 bit
MySQL server version 5.5.24-0ubuntu0.12.04.1
MySQL Workbench Version 5.2.38, rev 8753
