I do a lot of reviewing suggestions in Google Docs and I have the cursor "within" suggested text and would like to accept/reject the suggestion with a keyboard shortcut.

From what I can tell there is currently no keyboard shortcut for this, despite there being a menu item, but I am hoping to confirm this and document that it's missing.

Menu item "Accept Suggestion"

If you use the menu search (option+/) while the cursor is inside a suggestion, an Accept Suggestion item is available, and selecting it does what I expect it to. Unfortunately there is no keyboard shortcut displayed for it.

Other keyboard shortcuts for suggestions

As we can see, there are shortcuts to start reviewing, and to navigate between suggestions, but no way to directly accept or reject them

Is there a way to create a shortcut for this based on the menu item?

I'm happy to either be proven wrong ("there IS a shortcut") or to be explained that there is some way to take advantage of the menu item and add a shortcut for myself.
