Using primary key, CMD on Mac, as CTRL is used on Linux
Would be great if the Mac port used CMD instead of CTRL for e.g. multi select and copy-paste actions.
I might have been led on, but someone mentioned a change from using <control> to <primary> key was an easy switch in the software that would enable this perfectly across platforms.

To be honest I'm not sure if we should change this. I agree that it's a standard on Mac to give CMD key the same meaning as Ctrl has on PC, but on the other hand for multi-platform users (such as me) who use darktable both on Mac and Linux it can be confusing to have different shortcuts (there is Ctrl key after all). Also console applications like nano do use Ctrl key and not CMD. Plus DT on Mac has been around for some time now, so may be we are too late to change keyboard shortcuts. Probably some middle ground can be found, like changing <Control> to <Primary> only for well-known combinations like copy/paste.
