Some hot keys to comment / uncomment the source code using LPEX Editor in RDPi

We (developers) who are using LPEX editor in RDPi really feel a need of a hot key to comment/uncomment the source code(s). While writing source codes using LPEX editor if I need to comment/uncomment some of my source code lines I have to individually go to the line and comment (*) out the line at column 7 for a fixed format RPG/RPGLE program source or have to put // before any source code line in free format.

Use Case:

Open any Source Code using LPEX editor.
move the cursor to a perticular line or select a block of source codes (multiple lines)
Press aleardy available hot key (for e.g. CTRL + "/") to comment/uncomment the source code line(s)
