Bingo!  Yes, I discovered this Entities view earlier today as I was just going around all the menus looking for !! something !!  In my searches I also found the table where you can set up shortcuts, which also shows shortcuts that are already defined.  So now I also have the ability to select something that needs inline quotes, do Ctrl-E and pick 'q'.  Great!
