    And also don't forget about the mouse to access shortcuts.
    When modeling if you click the right mouse button hold it in and move the mouse you can access the shortcut wheel with either 4 or 8 different orientation options.
    When in sketch mode doing the same you can quickly access sketch features in the shortcut wheel.

    I use a Logitech G700 and they allows to customize the buttons, so I transferred the most important (for me) shortcuts on the additional buttons (9 buttons).
    It's a pleasure to work in this manner. It's practically not necessary to use the keyboard for shortcuts any more.
