Thanks for the shortcuts; I've added what I didn't already have into my Kindle shortcuts book (which I can share if anyone wants it).

Also, in regards to:

too as many people are wary of just clicking on a shortie link when they don't know where it will take them
I suggest using a tool called Dropmyrights.msi (google it) that works great for Windows and reduces your privileges to guest level so nothing can execute through your browser.

Version 1.11 has just been uploaded and has added notes on using the K3 as a (somewhat ungainly) calculator (thanks to Steven Ehrbar).

Another update: Ver 1.12 added a TOC on the web site itself, plus bits and pieces added to the sections on TTS, adding books to collections, and web browsing.

Just updated to Ver 1.13:

Added a 'FAQs and Hacks' section, with plans to gradually expand the FAQs. Also added info on searching for date/time when in a book, ejecting the Kindle from Vista/Win7, how to create/rename a collection, using Alt+M to bring up the new message dialog in Facebook, using radians for trig functions, info on .phl files.

I've just updated the K3 shortcuts/hints web site and mobi/azw files to version 1.15:
Mention of library lending coming for US people later this year, getting to the beginning of a book, disappearing collections, viewing books in your archives, getting rid of popular highlights (which don't seem quite so popular with everyone), and a little bit extra about page numbers. Just search the website or book for 1.15 to see the changed sections.

One more post after a very long time to say the web site and mobi/azw files have now been updated to version 1.16, with updates on library lending, archiving of personal documents, the long overdue keyboard shortcut for Voice Guide in ver 3.3, and various minor additions and changes.
