On the Unix version of ACEDB you can simply use the keyboard arrow
keys to move through the keyset list. You click twice on an item in
the keyset, then click back in the keyset (or on some window managers
just move the mouse over the keyset window) then use the up and down
arrows to move through the list. Works for all classes that I have
tried.
