Hi,
I don't see any options to change they keys, is there any other way to reassign some of the key bindings?

At the moment, no. Maybe we will get some option in a possible future patch, but don't get your hopes up...

Best you can do at the moment is use something like AutoHotkey to remap keys.

This is a great piece of software. You not only can change keybindings, but you can also use a key like <Pause> to toggle suspending the changed bindings, so that you can use keys for their original bindings.

Example, suppose you want to use W A S D for map scrolling, but the W, A, S, D keys might have in-game purposes already in in HOI4. Simple... Set them up for the directional bindings, then if you need an original purpose, just momentarily hit the <Pause> key and the key reverts to whatever purpose HoI4 had originally bound it too. Back to movement control... Just hit <Pause> again.

Best thing about this software. It's FREE!

What I do is usually remap the original commands to other keys, or shift them. So for instance W is Weather, map it to Shift+W. Same with A (Air report) and D (Dig in). Usually these keys are not pressed as much anyway. I also like to move more common keys closer to the left side for easy access, for instance Tab for cycling units. And a hotkey for right-click to avoid unneeded strain on the mouse hand

By the way these are my AHK setup for TOAW4:
