Modifying GitHub Desktop 's shortcuts

Is there a way to modify/edit/change Github Desktop shortcuts?

1. Is there a way to change the keys for a shortcut corresponding to a function?

e.g.
Ctrl+Shift+A ---> Ctrl+Shift+C  
to Open the repository in your preferred editor tool

2. Is there a way to make Github Desktop read/use/talk with .gitignore while openin a repository with my preferred editor tool?

@OrdinaryusRex Thanks for the questions.

Currently it is not possible to modify the available keyboard shortcuts in GitHub Desktop, and at this time we do not have any plans to enable this. If there is a specific shortcut you would like to see added please feel free to open an issue in https://github.com/desktop/desktop/issues.

I’m not sure I fully understand the question, but GitHub Desktop will respect your existing .gitignore file and you can also ignore files directly in GitHub Desktop by right-clicking on them in the Changes view. Let me know if I’m misunderstanding your question. Thanks for using GitHub Desktop!
