The mouse right click is the usual way to trigger the context menu. However, desktop environment also have built-in alternative that work in all native applications:
- the Menu key on Windows keyboard
At least Gnome and Windows support those two alternatives.
Wx support this feature with the EVT_CONTEXT_MENU.
- Gnome on Ubuntu 11.04: neither Shift+F10 nor Menu key works (Shift+F10 sends "ŝ" to the editor)
- Windows 7: menu key works, but Shift+F10 triggers the default Scintilla menu instead of Padre's menu
