Hotkeys for Switching Areas

We used to have hotkeys for "All Areas" (Shift+0) and "Unassigned" (Shift+9). Now each of the first eight areas is getting it's own hotkey from Shift+1 to Shift+8.

You can see which area gets which key by opening the area selection drop-down: area hotkeys can be seen in the area selector drop-down

In the future there will be a way to manually set a hotkey for each area. But for now the only way to do this is to change the alpabetical order of areas via renaming.
