Re: What crazy thing will they do next?

I did drop out of this conversation, but just happened to see this message (so please do let me know of anything important earlier I missed!)

As for WHY there isn't a straight list of all commands... We do have "Commands quick reference".  Theoretically this should list pretty much every command.  This information is pulled from the User Guide, so if anything is missing in one, it will be missing in the other.

If anyone is interested in comparing the commands in the commands quick reference with the assigned gestures in the input gestures dialog, I would be happy to be given a list of any discrepancies (either via email or as a GitHub issue.

I don't think there is a collated list of unassigned gestures, but I agree that could be useful and again, if anyone is interested in collating such a list, if you could let me know, it could well be worth adding a table to the User Guide (and thus the commands quick reference) with those.

Kind regards

No, but I agree such would be valuable. I don't know if Quentin is following
this conversation, but he is best positioned to comment on why such a thing
doesn't exist.

Perhaps file a feature request about this.
