Everybody

This thread is a wiki. This means that if you have time to spare, you can go through the entries and freely edit anything that is poorly written, be it grammar, syntax, the description of a function, better links to the manual if you can find them, anything.

My Rating

“My Rating” column is just a ballpark measure of how much it would be worth it to assign the key command. Some functions are so readily available when using a mouse that it’s not worth it to assign the key command. Some might just not be worth sacrificing a key to them. We can always run out of keyboard after all. Feel free to change the rating too, maybe leave a comment on why you think a command is better or worse, so that we all learn something new!
