:) Let me know if you guys notice any that don't work. I pulled these directly from the shortcut XML files so hopefully they are correct.

You can also reference the shortcuts list in the manual in section:

2.4.5 Preset Shortcuts

When you use the move tools(zxc and asd), how do you exit them? Is there a shortcut for that?

Anyone know how to hide the nav widget in skeleton edit mode (other than right mouse on the centre of the widget)..

Need hot key . Constantly obscuring joints etc, driving me nuts! Even right mouse only hides for one use then up it comes again on next joint.
