ATM there is no way to bind a key to a <submenu> type of action. If the bar is 
showing labels, then respective button mnemonics are supposed to work, but I 
see that this needs fixing (now done), and even after that, is still weird for 
popup menus (menu shows only if mnemonic key is held down long enough for 2 or 
3 auto-repeats). Maybe some workaround can be found.

The toggles need to be in pairs, they don't work for single bindings, as you've 
found. I just added a block so that these actions do not appear in the picklist 
for key-bindings, but that doesn't stop the user typing them in anyway.

Bind some key to
!output.adjust_ratio *,1
output.adjust_ratio '*,1'

(Both of these prevent the '*' from being interpreted as a list of files.)

BTW, the arguments given to output.adjust_ratio and panes.adjust_ratio are not 
working too well, and things need to be changed to get it all working as 
described in the ACTIONS document. I aim to do this before next release.
