Notes

In the key configs screen, the icon with 12 little grey dots denotes a key command that was "­Learned by Key Positi­on"
In the key config screen, a command with a bullet symbol in front indicates that command is available via keystroke only (not in menus).
"­Ent­er" and "­Ret­urn­" are not the same thing! "­Ent­er" = Fn+Return

Still a WIP. I have a habit of forgetting some of these, so thought making a cheatsheet would help reinforce my memory. Feel free to suggest any changes/updates.

Should I change all of the "Alt"'s to "Option"s? "Alt" takes up less space...
