CTRL-left-click and backspace functionality are described under the main menu - Help/Keyboard commands/ which encompasses almost everything available except F11, AFAIK.
FWIW, I took a few minutes to capture screenshots of the Help/Keyboard and Mouse Commands and saved them to a PDF as a players aid. I'm surprised these aren't already available to print out? Perhaps Steve can include this as a file in the \Manuals folder, or he or someone else could improve upon it as a printable players aid. There's a lot of tricks to remember!
Section 11.6 of the Players Manual volume 2 describes the mouse and keyboard commands in more detail than the 'forms' that can be called up from within the game. The 'forms' condense a lot of stuff onto a few pages, which require some deciphering on the part of the reader. The text in the Players Manual should be easier to understand.
The 'forms' are generated by software/code so I can modify them whenever necessary. Stuff in the manuals was prepared ~6 months before the game was released, so they could be printed in time for the game's release.
One of the banes of software is that as the software changes, the printed material doesn't. That has been a problem for me for the last 50 years.
F11 was a software development/debugging aid that I polished up somewhat and 'announced' its availability. Originally, only the beta testers had access to it. Note that not all keyboards support F11, so making it part of the game was something I did reluctantly - since some customers wouldn't be able to use it.
