Why no Variables catalog?

I love being able to use the F8 and F9 keys to quickly select the character or paragraph tag I need using the typeahead. Why isn't there a similar catalog for variables and maybe even for conditions? 

 

Edited to add: I liked this idea so much, I put a feature request in: https://tracker.adobe.com/#/view/FRMAKER-7847

Hi Lin:

 

Use Ctrl 0 to assign a variable. 

 

Ctrl 4 to add a condition tag to the selected text

Ctrl 5 to remove a single condition tag from the selected text

Ctrl 6 to remove all condition tags from the selected text

 

Ctrl F8 and F8 do the same thing, as do Ctrl 9 and F9, fyi. That't handy to know on a keyboard like mine, which requires Fn to access the function keys.

How did I miss these? Probably was looking for function keys.

 

I must add them to my shortcuts document immediately.

LOL. I've yet to meet anyone who knows everything about FrameMaker, or any mature Adobe app for that matter. If you do, be sure to let us all know—I'd like to shake their hand. 😊
