The global shortcuts are disabled because they conflict with the Cmd+o
shortcuts used everywhere in the GTInspector and GTPlayground. We have an
issue open on this, but we did not yet come to a conclusion. It would be
useful to have more eyeballs looking at it:

You cannot :(. The current implementation of the Miller column widget is
not at all optimal. I have a new design that does not rely on a scrollbar
at all, but to get that to work, we would need a bit more effort involved
in building the necessary widgets. It would be great to have more
contributions there. If anyone is interested, please let me know.

Great. Let me know how it works and what quirks you get into.
