    Well, it looks like it is not fixed. (Tested file attachment with another post and it worked. Problem appears to be specific to this post.)

    Attempting to upload a new version again. This version separates Keyboard shortcuts from Mouse behaviors; mouse behaviors are on a separate page. Having both on the same page made it cumbersome to maintain and visually confusing. It is now a 2 page (2-sided) reference card.

    Still cannot upload files to this post.

    Excellent!  I learn something every time you bring one of these out.  This time: LMB double click - select associated feature AND Ctrl LMB - Select entity and open Context Menu.  

    Thanks for doing these the new formatting is great!   :)

    Suggestion for 'Sketch' section -  'Square rectangle'  which is Alt LMB while in either of the rectangle tools.

    Oh damn! That's awesome, I wasn't aware of that one. Thanks

    Thanks for pointing out the undocumented keyboard short cut in the onscreen "?" pop-up. (I see ALT g is documented in the on-line Help.)

    Incorporated ALT g into Keyboard Quick Ref. Guide.

    Onshape Update: 4/17/2020 (1.112) 

    Added new keyboard shortcut Shift t Transparency to 3D Viewing section.

    Added comment to Shift s Create sketch: Use a Plane or Mate Connector instead of a face to define a sketch plane with no edge imprinting. A Mate Connector adds a local Coordinate System making it possible change the orientation of a Horizontal/Vertical constraint.)

    Added comment to ? Display keyboard short cut: Selecting the arrow (upper right corner) converts the popup display to a proper window.

    Also added comments to a few sketch functions that have different behaviors when the LMB drag is used.

    l-Line (LMB drag creates single line segment)
    Shift f-Fillet (LMB drag resizes the fillet)
    o-Offset (LMB drag resizes the offset. Shift LMB drag chains connected curves.)

    You got all the ones I wrote on my copy by hand.  This is a great reference and training tool!  Thank you for keeping it up!

    One thing - Technically 'Alt g' is not right.  It is  Alt LMB drag to create square in both rectangle tools (g corner rectangle and r center point).
      
    Might be best to put a parenthesis under g and r like:
    (Alt LMB drag for square)

    Thanks for the critique. I have made the necessary changes to clarify this behavior. 

    Revisited wording of Shift s-Create sketch and o-Offset  embedded comments and improved the wording.

    Onshape updates: 6-24-2020 (1.115) 

    Updated to reflect changes to what happens now with arrow keys:

    3D view rotation steps are now 15 degrees instead of 45.
    Arrow keys with Shift key are now 5 degree rotation steps instead of 10% of screen pan.

    Incorrectly assumed Arrow Key panning was lost when Shift+Arrow Key function was changed to 5 degree rotation steps.  

    Keyboard equivalent for Pan function is now Ctrl+Shift+Arrow Key.
