Assigning or creating a keyboard shortcut for Vivaldi Reader View

Click on V menu > Tools > Settings > Keyboard, scroll down and expand Page section for the so far assigned shortcuts to be displayed.

In the Toggle Reader View field, type desired shortcut (single key shortcuts won’t be allowed by default).

For instance, you can use Alt +R shortcut, which is the  same one Mozilla has assigned to Firefox Reader View. Ensure the cursor in the input field is highlighted, hold the ‘Alt’ button and press ‘R’ button on the keyboard.
