Hi Alex,
Very useful cheat sheet -thank you for posting.

Would it be possible to also include this FAR key combination:

Ctrl-Z


The command "Describe" (Ctrl-Z) from the Files menu is used to describe selected files.

Thanks a lot,
Pavel


Here are some more details from FAR help system:
...
This may be used to associate text information with a file.
Descriptions of the files in the current folder are stored in this folder in a
description list file. The format of the description file is the file name
followed by spaces and the description.

Descriptions may be viewed in the appropriate file panel view modes. By default these modes are "Descriptions" and "Long descriptions".

Description list names may be changed using "File descriptions" dialog from the "Options menu". In this dialog you can also set local descriptions update mode. Updating may be disabled, enabled only if panel current view mode displays descriptions or always enabled. By default Far sets "Hidden" attribute to created description lists, but you may disable it by switching off the option "Set "Hidden" attribute to new description lists" in this dialog. Also here you may specify the position to align new file descriptions in a description list.

If a description file has the "read-only" attribute set, Far does not attempt to update descriptions, and after moving or deleting file objects, an error message is shown. If the option "Update read only description file" is enabled, Far will attempt to update the descriptions correctly.

If it is enabled in the configuration, Far updates file descriptions when
copying, moving and deleting files. But if a command processes files from subfolders, descriptions in the subfolders are not updated.

Hi pkoulikov. Sorry I've missed your comment. Added 'Describe file' to the cheat sheet. Thanks.
I am not using this, but someone can find it useful.
