|How to redirect key presses to another shell? [message #673993]

I'm working on a way to maximise an EditorPart to be absolutely full-screen, no trim, no menu, and so on. Actually, it's a GEF Editor. It's a bit of a hack, but it kind of works:|
GraphicalViewer viewer = (GraphicalViewer)getWorkbenchPart().getAdapter(GraphicalViewer.class);
Control control = viewer.getControl();
Composite oldParent = control.getParent();
Shell shell = new Shell(SWT.APPLICATION_MODAL);
// Some code here to listen to Esc key to dispose Shell and return...
Basically it sets the parent of the GraphicalViewer control to the newly created, maximised Shell. Pressing escape will return the control to it's original parent (code not shown for brevity).
The only thing that doesn't work is receiving global key presses (Del, Ctrl-Z, Ctrl-A) the ones that are declared for the Workbench and forwarded to the EditorPart. Is there any way I can hook into these or redirect them from the EditorPart to forward them on to the GraphicalViewer?
Thanks in advance,
