Mining drone shortcuts

Currently it is a point and click circus to mine with the Rorqual and drones.
Please add Mine and Mine repeatedly to for shortcut assignment.

Would also be nice to have a similar option (guns to spread fire F1-F5) to send individual drones to mine asteroids since a maxed out rorq in a normal asteroid belt will just need one excavator drone to often clear a single rock in one mining cycle.
Right now you have to click the asteroid then right click on the drone and command it to mine, repeat for next drone.

YES, oh yes, this!

Age does not diminish the extreme disappointment of having a scoop of ice cream fall from the cone.

This has been a problem for years now, nows a really good time ccp, to finally fix mining drones to work with the shortcut for sending drones to attack, to also make them go mine

+100!!!

I would think that you CCP would have already thought about this with the Rorqual/Excavator changes but so far doesnt look like it but NOW would be a really good time to implement this!

Could we get maybe a tidbit from one of the Devs if maybe this is something that is even being looked at?

Considering Salvage drones will start work when you use the short cut for "engage target" I've always wondered why it does not work for mining drones. What?

Mining drones seem to be the only kind with that issue, which sucks.
