[racket] Custom Key Bindings - Post Your File

I'm caught in a bit of Catch-22.   From the doc.

If you are most familiar with Emacs-style key bindings (especially on
windows or some linux installations where the control key is, by default,
for the menu shortcuts), you should uncheck the Enable keybindings in
menus preference.
Many of the keybindings below are inspired by Emacs.

So I've disabled keybindings in menu and thereby lose crtl-r Run and crtl-i
Reindent.  I'd like to re-bind but I've as of yet been unable to locate
what functions Run and Reindent correspond to.

I totally missed the online check syntax option, which sounds like a very
good thing.  In fact I'm still totally missing it. :)  I just rechecked the
menus/preferences.  Where is this mythic option found?
