Well, F123 was mostly TTY only. So the bindings are set with that in mind :). The project wanted to momic GUI shortcuts for most parts.
The colliding shortcuts can be changed very easy in settings file.
If you hand me a list with shortcuts you want to have changed, i change them for you right in master.
As F123 is no more, TTY compat. does not matter that much anymore to me and we can improve it in terminal emulators (most of them have more capabilities than TTY in any way, for example konsole ( the KDE terminal emulator has special escape sequences for shift arrow)

Yes I can redefine them, but that's kind of something Im slwly slowly poking at. I'm unable to get Mate-terminal to recognize a ctrl+alt patern hough whereas a TTY works fine so, unsure if you need to test Dragonfm on terminal emulators with a desktop?

By default dragonfm does not use atool but unzip command for zip files and tar of course for tar those need to be installed or confured to use something else. (I can give you a more detailed information how to configure those stuff if you are interested in)
