QFG3: can't use the keyboard for game functions — at Version 7

Description (last modified by )
Ctrl/functions/tab keys don't work in this game which makes it a bit user unfriendly.
For example CTRL+Q is supposed to offer to quit, while F5 and F7 are supposed to offer to save and restore respectively.
IMDb's trivia claims "This is the only game in the series in which the player cannot use the keyboard for the game functions". But if that's true, it still doesn't mean ScummVM shouldn't cover for it like it did and does for so many other things the original authors didn't do.
If possible, at the very least make it like SCUMM games in which F5 brings a central menu, which this game indeed has, just without a shortcut.
I've tried it in the latest Windows 64 build, v2.2.0git4593-gf531eba971 (Apr 20 2020 05:59:17)
