Good find, and your note at the bottom is spot on! Thanks!

I tried some of the shortcuts a couple of days ago as we discovered them and the "simultaneously" instruction Amazon uses simply doesn't work. You have to press and hold the Keyboard button first then press the other button. So I added these shortcuts to the first post of the thread and re-worded Amazon's wording to better fit the actual actions.

I don't have a K4, but someone who does may want to bundle up these tips and make them into a "book" for your Kindle. Write them up in word and save them as a text file or use Calibre or Amazon email to convert to mobi. Then attach the book to this thread.

Good idea for two reasons:

1. The provided user manual is terrible for the K4.

2. The moderators won't turn this thread into a sticky.

I'll try to get this eBook of K4 Tips posted today.

Thanks for the idea!

These tips now available as a mobi eBook

A mobi eBook of these tips is now available and may be freely distributed. I attached the book to the first post in this thread.

I gave all you guys (collectively) credit for the tips.

Image files need to be 800x600 or less? that has never been the case before. Larger images could be zoomed and panned. Are there Menu or other options ('text') for the viewer as before?
