Inventory interface upgrades

I have a few suggestions on how to make the inventory screens more user-friendly and intuitive.

1. Allow to go to the item type list by hotkey from the main inventory screen.

Why? Let's say you want to see your rings. You go inventory -> view stuff -> =rings.
I'd like a change that inventory -> =rings would have the same effect. One keypress less, no downside.

2. Allow to use item type hotkeys (% for food, = for rings, etc) in extended drop menu :d.

Why? Because these are more intuitive/easier to remember, as they are used in more places and also are the graphical representations of the items. So, if I want to drop all books, I could go :d". Right now I have to go :d ...uhhh what was the letter again... t.

Current letter choices could stay of course, for those who prefer them. Unfortunately, this would mean changing the binding for cursed items and items with unknown status.

3. Allow item type hotkeys to move the list when using comfortable drop ctrl+d.

Why? Right now you need to scroll it manually, which is not all that comfortable. Let's say for example that I have multiple stacks of rocks I want to drop. I need to do ctrl+d and then pg dn as many times as required to get there. Which can be quite a few. I'd like to do ctrl+d and then / instead - to have the comfortable drop list scrolled to missiles.

All three are good and shouldn't be hard to implement. Upvoting.

2 & 3 are great and should be implemented. 1 is already implemented in that you can type Inventory -> =rings, so there's no need for it.

Oh, didn't know this. But still, let's say I want to use spense from backpack - Uv%, while it could be U% instead.

Well, imo, U should bring up inventory anyway, not equipment - if I wanted to use something in equipment, I would put it tool slot. I guess maybe someone put moss in like missile slot and orb in tool slot to use it quickly, but that is mostly only workaround for U not bringing up inventory, so I'd like to see U bring up inv. :D

Luckily today it is u%. So implemented.

I have checked our current means of navigations and believe that they fulfill all expectations - even though they might be slightly different in use.
