Brilliant cheat sheet, fred! You're on a roll! :)

great stuff
but there is something import missing (an also a little mistake) in the QlikView Set Analysis Examples:

sum({1} sales}) .. only disregarding the selection (so not total)

sum({1} Total sales) .. disregarding the selection and dimension

maybe you can fix it

great stuff, thanks !
but please fix:
sum({1} sales) .. only disregarding selection
and please add:
sum({1} total sales) .. disregarding both selection and dimension
