When you press and hold the super key, you get a nice overview of a
number of useful shortcuts. We can refer to this in the manual (Chapter
2, the Ubuntu Desktop), or perhaps it is already mentioned somewhere.
I am not in favour of mentioning the obvious shortcuts like
copy/cut/paste etc., but a shortcut for, e.g. opening the terminal, or
switching workspaces, which are Ubuntu/Unity specific, is very
convenient and could be mentioned in a margin note.
Besides, you can find a lot of shortcut overviews on the web.
