I'm surprised they haven't been mentioned before in this thread.
I don't know how many got an edition with a paper manual, but most folks seem to have the PDF versions of the manual and the strategy guide included on disk one.
I went looking for the official list of hotkeys
and was horrified (appropriate for a pirate game, eh?) to find the notation Note: Hotkey list located on the back cover
at the bottom of the Table of Contents for the Manual. Of course, the PDF file doesn't include the "back cover."
There is a saving page in the Strategy Guide. It is labeled Keyboard Shortcuts
. It is on page 12 (Acrobat Reader page 7).
A partial list:
Pause/Break Pause game
G Toggle grid lines
T Toggle trees
L Bring up the Island Log
M Show Strategic Map
Backspace Center on subject of current circle window alert
Of course, the whole list is worth looking up if you are as handy with the keyboard as you are with the mouse.
