Inconsistent hotkeys for left panel; request for clarity


The tabs in the left panel have inconsistent hotkeys.

Local - F (why isn't this Fleet)?
Fleet - R (there is no letter R anywhere within a mile of the word Fleet!)
Build - B
Tech - T
Hacks - H
Mercs - O (same as with Fleet!)
Intel - I

I know that L and M are already taken up by other actions, which is unfortunate, but it especially makes no sense that F gets you to Local instead of Fleet, when 4 out of 7 of the tabs are selectable by first letter.

If it's not possible to switch Local, Fleet and Mercs to L, F and M, then there should at least be an indicator on the tab itself for what the hotkey is.

Lots of changes coming in 0.896 that should resolve all of these complaints.  Thanks! :)

And excellent observations.

While we're at it ;) it would be nice to be able to use the Planet (formerly Local) sidebar to target enemy unit types. If I have a fleet selected I'd like to be able to, for example, right-click on a guard post in the Planet tab and have the fleet select that as the primary/preferred target.
