<Delete> Deletes the currently selected canvas. (CAREFUL! There is currently a bug which makes this work in just about any context! ie: if you are editing a parameter and press the delete key, it will delete the layer! this can be easily undone, but just keep it in mind) Since SVN r2303 this has been changed to <Control>-<Delete> to avoid that bug.
<Cursor Key> Nudge the currently selected duck(s) one pixel in the given direction
<Shift>-<Cursor Key> Nudge the currently selected duck(s) ten pixels in the given direction
<Backspace> Select the immediate paste canvas parent (if any) of the current selected layer.

Hotkeys Visual Guide

A good way to learn all this shorcuts is putting them in front of your eyes all the time. Because of that, we bring to you a beatiful "Hotkeys Visual Guide" that you can use as a poster.

We offer you two print sizes (both in PDF):

And these are the source files in SVG format:
