Summary0002815: Default shortcut (shift + d) for "Constrain distance" has conflict
DescriptionOne of the most useful constraint in the sketcher is the Distance constraint. The keyboard shortcut for this is (and has been for a while) shift+D. Recently, the function "Docked" has been assigned to the same shortfuct, which conflicts, and hinders the function. Please change the default shortcut for Docked to something else.
Steps To ReproduceOpen Sketcher
Draw a line
Press shift+D (nothing happens, since windows are docked be default)
Additional InformationWorkaround: Using the Customize menu, re-assign the keyboard shortcut for Docked (under Standard view) to something else.

@yorik is this still the case in 0.17 ? If so this FR sounds reasonable.
