Revit Keyboard Shortcuts

When a new release of Revit comes out there are a few things I check into. One of those things are keyboard shortcuts to see if their are any new tools that may have not been documented. While in Revit 2017 I noticed there is a new set of Rotate shortcuts (they were there in 2016, I must have missed them): Rotate 45, Rotate 90, Rotate 180

Of course upon seeing this I wanted to test it in the project environment, I did however notice that it was a “Contextual Tab” tool, which means this is a command that is only used when a given object is selected and not part of the Rotate Command.  I decided to see if I could find it in the Help  upon which I was reminded about a link in the Help files that I forgot was there.  Autodesk has been nice enough to supply a download of all the keyboard shortcuts, both in an Excel form as well as PDF form.
