RE: MacOS shortcut options

| control-8	the only way to do the same thing for character tags,

| control-4	apply a condition
| control-5	remove a condition
| control-6 	does something ELSE with conditions, I think, but can't

Control 5 lets you remove an individual, named condition from the selected
content of the document, 

Control 6 removes ALL conditions associated with the selected content

Graphics/Text nudges:

Meta-arrowkey	  nudges one pixel in arrow's direction

Meta-Shift-arrowkey nudges 6 pixels " 

  (Meta key = Alt for Windows, Option for Mac, and Control for Unix)

Note these are relative amounts at the current zoom factor, e.g. they
move an object twice as far at 100% as they do at 200% magnification.
(ever wonder why anyone would ever use 1600% magnification?)

If you have selected text, these combinations will alter the position,
just as if it were an object; you can artificially 'kern', subscript
or superscript individual characters.

I'll dig around and see if I can find the V3 shortcut info, and if I
can, I'll post it as a PDF on our web site.
