  1. Isn’t this fairly incomplete? I have a printout of an old PDF created by a FM third party developer … it is basically 2 11×17″ pages.

  2. “At work, there are barely any shortcuts that are good in the long run.” In my experience, the problem is not that keyboard shortcuts change all the time. In fact, I can’t remember the last time I had that problem.

    It’s much more annoying that shortcuts are inconsistent between different products:
    An en-dash in Word is “Ctrl + Num -“; in Frame it is Ctrl+q Shift+p.
    Ctrl+Return in Word adds a page break; in Frame it adds table rows.
