Windows 10 Newbie here - Can someone point me to a comprehensive list of keyboard shortcuts for AP Windows?

I'm doing fairly well learning AP but I miss the keyboard shortcuts I used (and am still using) when working in PS CC. I have the Affiniti Photo Workbook and have pored over the shortcuts there. I've looked at the downloadable shortcuts for Windows. None of those sources provide all the shortcuts I'm hoping are available. I've learned about two dozen shortcuts, but I've been used to many more in PS CC. The ones which I "need" right now  are those for Highlights/Shadows, Brightness/Contrast, Curves, Exposure, Vibrance, and Color Balance. I'm sure there are others which aren't springing into mind at the moment.

@bill hansen: You can see all of them in the Keyboard Shortcuts section of your Affinity Preferences.

Or, perhaps easier, try here.

[Note that using Preferences you can also see items which you could set shortcuts for, but which don't currently have one assigned. I think the other listing just shows the ones that are assigned by default, not everything that could have one.]

Most of the keyboard shortcut preferences are categorized by where they appear on the menus, so for example since the New Adjustment Layer & New Live Filter choices appear on the Layer menu in the Photo Persona, if you set the first popup in the preference to "Photo" & the second one to "Layer" you can scroll through the list displayed in that same order to find the ones you want to set shortcuts for, something like this:

Hmmmm - I am probably not understanding what either of you are recommending. When I go through either of your recommendations, I see only a very few shortcuts, but I've already stumbled upon forty four shortcuts - I even stumbled upon one for HSL, so I know there must be more of them.

What I am hoping for at the moment are shortcuts to the things I mentioned in my original post to this thread -  Brightness, Exposure, Color Balance, Curves, Vibrance. If there are not shortcuts to these, that's okay - just tell me. Thanks.

Look at the screenshot in my post just above yours. the 4th item from the top is Exposure, 7th is Brightness/Contrast, 9th is Curves, 12th is Color Balance, & there are others if you scroll farther down. To create a keyboard shortcut for any of them, click in the field on the right & type the keys you want to assign to that item.

If you go to the Affinity help files inside the app. Help menu > Help (or F1) and search for ‘keyboard shortcuts’ every single keyboard shortcut (dozens of them) is listed in there, arranged in the same order as the top menu bar.

There are no shortcuts to the ones you asked for (except Ctrl + M for Curves)

It is very easy to add your own though. Go to Edit > Preferences > Keyboard Shortcuts and the various Adjustments are in the Layers section of the second dropdown menu, as is shown in the screenshot posted by @R C-R

Thanks to everyone who replied. Toltec had the answer I needed. The list in the Help files showed me what I need to know. After I learn the program much better, I'll try to create shorcuts for the edits I use often but which are not available in Edit/Preferences/Layers in my copy of AP.
