Keyboard Shortcuts & Gestures

As with most modern iOS apps, if you need to quickly look up a keyboard shortcut you can hold down the Command key for a few seconds. Not every shortcut will be listed in the cheat sheet. Common commands such as Copy and Paste will be implied, and some commands are simply not listed as their usage is more advanced in nature (such as moving a document around in the binder outside of edit mode).

This reference should list every global and context shortcut, as well as gestures that can be used to perform common actions or customise the view.
