May I suggest that you add the keyboard shortcuts but keep the icons, too? It's perfectly fine to give users 3 or 4 ways of accessing commands. As a fast typist, it drives me nuts to have to remove my hands from the keyboard to use the mouse to access a command. Yet others who grew up using the mouse predominately are happier having icons to click. Allow both.

Thank you! That's exactly the feature I was hoping to reinstate. I decided to assign a keyboard shortcut to the command instead of placing an icon on the toolbar. I've avoided using toolbar icons ever since I had a case of tendonitis a long time ago and found that reducing my reliance on the mouse made a big difference.
