what I am after, described with two examples:
1. > Insert > Cross Reference
this used to show - as far as I remember- in the old golden times -
ctr r at the right. In my present LyX there is none (LyX Version
(Thursday, June 25, 2020))
2. Suppose I am translating text from German into English. The German 
figure has in the short title as well as in the legend blue underlined 
text. To get rid of it after the translation, I do
ctr a in the legend > which selects the text.
A right mouse click > Language > English UK
Now I have to do the same with the short title, since the change in 
language does not work for the short title, when I do it in the legend.

I don't mind to do it for a few legends, but if you have hundred of 
them, it would be nice to get in the selection the short cut.
I just wonder, whether I haven't found the right way of using it; as 
said already, I am quite sure I had this feature before.
