Thanks for the suggestion!
I don't see too many problems in making the change.
Can I offer you a couple of suggestions?
(1) Using the short cut keys in KA would also cut down on number of key strokes. Press your desired shortcut (I use CTRL SHIFT N) to create a new alarm) and hey presto up comes the Add New Alarm screen. The hot keys can be set in the preferences screen (see 1.jpg below)
(2) In the preferences set it so that new alarms automatically go to the advanced screen. That will also cut down on the number of key strokes.
