Hot Keys Layout?

I'm terrible at figuring out which keys to make into hotkeys. It takes me like 3 hours and then my fingers are still playing twister on the keyboard. Having admitted my one fault (grin), I was wondering if anyone would mind sharing their key mapping list for greatest functionality.

And, #Kinggath, is there an ini file we can edit to set up our keymappings?

FYI: I have a Razor Orbweaver, Naga, and a Logitech G510. So, you think I could figure this out. I know how to program the keys, I just don't know what to map them to for best affect.

If you wanted to use FO4 Hotkeys, you could set up an ini, but that conflicts with MCM which has a much better hotkey system and would recommend you use that instead. You can press the keys directly in the MCM screen for Workshop Plus.

I personally play with an Xbox controller, so its easy for me to dedicate a lot of my keyboard to the hotkeys. I tend to just hotkey the stuff I use all the time until I get to a point where I need access to something special, then I'll go back and hotkey that in the moment.

My current setup is this:

F: Toggle Flight (sometimes its useful to turn it off, especially to get through doorways)
T: Toggle Freeze Time
Z: Undo
X: Redo
C: Clone
N: New Layer
L: Switch Layer
K: Clear Layer
H: Toggle Layer
J: Toggle Active Layer Highlighting

Yeah, I can't use a controller but I just discovered the numpad on my keyboard is not being used for anything. In Skyrim, I used to use it for Dev Aveza controls. So, I will give this a go.
Thanks for taking the time to reply.

Spent all morning coming up with a 'non-conflicting' plan that included Fallout 4 (some custom keybinds), Place Everywhere (default keybinds, I think), and Workshop Plus (all custom keybinds). I have attached it as a PDF file here if anyone wants to save themselves the time.

A few notes. I use a Left-Hand Keypad, Programmable Keyboard and Mouse combo. So, my setup may not work out 100% for you. But, didn't want to not offer the help, just in case.

I think out keyboard manufacturers need to start thinking about giving us some more keys to use. LOL.
