      Most of them can be replaced with ^!Menu {main
      entry}/{sub-entry}/sub-sub-entry (where entries containing blanks must
      be enclosed in quotes.

      eg. ^!Menu Modify/Lines/"Split Lines" and ^!Menu Edit/Delete.
      For: Shift+DOWN (extend selection by one line) I think ^!Select nnn and
      ^!Select +/-nnn specifically ^!Select +1 will do what you want.

      Also don't forget ^!Toolbar tooltip-text eg. ^!Toolbar "Split Lines"
      (not checked but assume it also requires quotes) (... later ... maybe
      not per the examples in Help for ^!Toolbar)
