Hotkeys for Save States & Loading Save States

Citra is great, thanks for all your hard work making it for us. A facility in another emulator that I’ve used is that of multiple Save States, and I see that there are 10 Save State positions in Citra, if I click on the Menu>Emulation>Load State / Save State. But how to access them? The only Hotkeys I can see are (Command)-C to Save to Oldest Slot and (Command)-V to Load from Newest Slot. Which roughly translates to one save state in operation. In this other emu, it was like (Command)-1 -2 -3 -4 -5 for saving to slots 1-5 and (Command)(Shift)-1 -2 -3 -4 -5 to load them. This is great for trying out new tactics in the game, testing out an alternative route, etc. Be great if you could implement it.
