Keyboard Commands List



Introduction



I've created this guide for myself, but I figured I'd share it with all of you. It took me a little bit to figure out where the "Keyboard Commands" were. I didn't realize that you can only access them via the "Story Menu" and not the "Main Menu"

So I thought to myself that I may not be the only one puzzled. Use it as you see fit. I printed mine out, and I took the most popular ones to tape on the side of my monitor for quick reference. I tried to copy them as accurately as possible from the "Story Menu" These are the default commands. I didn't add or change anything.
