Complete List of the Prepar3D Commands

including the standards keyboard shortcuts

Looking through the internet we couldn't find a complete list of the Prepar3D commands (as they appear in the settings window of the application). With some semi-manual work we created the list and would like to share it with you here.

You can use it and redistribute the list freely. If there is a problem with the text let us know using the contact possibilities below.
