Summary0007153: Use Duplicate action that operates dependent on context by default with Alt+d key binding
DescriptionIf some regions are selected then by default Alt+d will duplicate one or more
Regions. If I am using the range selection tool then my expectation is that
Alt+d will duplicate the range selection.

Currently this is not the case as Duplicate Range has a separate key binding
that can be assigned. As I use Duplicate Range more frequently and I feel it is
generally more useful I assign the Alt+d key binding to Duplicate Range.

I was somewhat surprised that Duplicate Range will also duplicate a Region
Selection and so does what I sort of expected and am suggesting in the title

So I think we should rename the 'Duplicate Range' action to just 'Duplicate'
and possibly remove the Duplicate Region action or if it is needed for some
reason then at least change the default key binding for Alt+d to the renamed
'Duplicate' action.
TagsNo tags attached.

I have a patch series that implements these suggestions and fixes a few other small issues. I'll push to master after release of 5.5 for testing etc.
