It is possible to become more efficacious and proficient with any tool when you know how to use shortcuts. Consider this for a moment. Do you think it is okay if someone repeatedly selects text by dragging through the mouse and selecting the cut option from the menu for once instead of pressing Ctrl+X? or by holding down the mouse button to copy the entire text instead of pressing Ctrl+A? There is no exception to this rule when it comes to Linux shortcuts.
