When copying content into Docs, for collaborative editing, there are some changes that I would like to get confirmation on (in Suggesting mode) and others that I want to make silently (in Editing mode). Switching between these states with a mouse is cumbersome. Is there a shortcut?

These are the Editing shortcuts:

A full set under Help > Keyboard shortcuts (or Ctrl+ /).


As of today I think the answer has changed. I can't find official documentation for it, but it works on my account

Editing mode: Shift-Option-Command-Z

Suggesting mode: Shift-Option-Command-X

Viewing mode:  Shift-Option-Command-C
