Great cheat sheet!

Thx ,

Opening a new window is META + N -> not META +W (close window or tab)

cdiehl cdiehl, 17:11 24 Jul 12

That's correct - Fixed.

Great sheet.
I made recently a sheet for firefox for german users. How can i add the icons ?
Did you use LiveContent ? Or how is this done ?

cdiehl cdiehl, 09:17 20 Feb 13

The easiest way is to simply copy/past those icons into your cheat sheet. ;-)

Hi,

I have tested it and some hotkeys are not working... in the part Firefox of your document, only 4 of 10 hotkeys are working. I dont have any addons. Tested on 2 different machines. Firefox 19.

The working hotkeys are:
New Window
Close Window
Open File
Quit Firefox

First why dont you use the icons for strg and shift? Why such things like this ⌘ and this ⌥?
And why is this: ⌥ and ⇧ the same? because ⌘⇧W (strg + shift + w) correct and ⌥⌘K (strg + shift + K). Only different hotkeys but strg + shift are the same with other symbols oO.

Regards
Chris

1) This is the keyboard layout for MacOS.
2) The reason I have used symbols is to save space on the cheat sheet.
3) "strg" is a German term and not internationally known.

⌘ command
⌥ option/alt
^ control
⇧ shift

Pretty obvious and self explained - normally.
