Pe matches keyboard shortcuts with physical keys but not mapped keys

Pe (and the similar Paladin Editor) uses the wrong keys for keyboard shortcuts when using the Dvorak keyboard layout. It is easiest to describe with an example:

Normal (WebPositive, Terminal, StyledEdit...): Find is Alt+F Pe: Find is Alt+U (F is U in Dvorak)

Normal: Open is Alt+O Pe: Open is Alt+R (O is R in Dvorak)

Normal: Undo is Alt+Z Pe: Undo is Alt+; (Z is ; in Dvorak)

To further clarify, I am using a QWERTY keyboard with the Dvorak keyboard map.

Thank you.

First, Pe is not a Haiku component. Second, I think that Pe behavior is more correct than Haiku behavior becouse shortcuts should be international and easily usable. Most shortcuts like Alt+Z, Alt+X etc. are used for their location on keyboard, not character name.

For Pe related bugs, please file bug reports on Pe's website:

X512: shortcuts usually use the character name when it's available without modifiers, and fallback to the America Qwerty. Hence Pe behavior isn't what one would expect.
