Alt+C activates the console,
and esc brings one back to the editor.
but how can I activate the variables frame so I can create a shortcut with the keyboard
so I can begin typing and searching for a variable following that shortcut?
and not have to move my mouse.
ideally the same shortcut would activate the variables pane, during a debugging session
so the keyboard shortcut could be used for both debugging and normal python console use.
