Keyboard shortcut for displaying contextual help

Some websites have help panels that pop up when a user types a keyboard shortcut.

Press command+/ on a Mac or control+/ on Windows in Slack and a pane of keyboard shortcuts pops up.

I wonder if it would be helpful to use a keybinding like this to open the "Keyboard Shortcuts" modal when a user is within TinyMCE.

There's already a shortcut for the keyboard shortcuts modal (ctrl+option+h on a Mac).

What about using command+/for displaying the screen options or the help tabs?

I'm partial to the way GMail handles the help modal. If a text input of any kind isn't focused, simply typing ? (question mark) opens the help modal. Slick.

Note: See TracTickets for help on using tickets.
