Not much to add for concerning shortcuts:
Shortcuts for Arrangement (back/forward..) are listed in the menu Arrange all with brackets, but I'm not using them because they are only functional on a QWERTY (I'm on AZERTY)
No way to switch focus from object on stage to timeline AFAIK, and if I want to move through selecting objects I'm doing it on the timeline, where you already discovered the arrows. On stage you can use the TAB-key but it will start from the bottom of the stack on the timeline.
Move playhead to start timeline (when timeline is in focus): Home
No snap end of object timeline to playhead, have introduced already multiple times a feature request about that.
Move slide up/down in filmstip (or even sometimes no need for focus on filmstrip): PageUp/PageDown
I told you I'm a shortcut freak
Thanks, Lilybri, these are great.
To clarify, what I mean by moving slide up or down is this:
Say you have a slide that's now slide 15, and you need some similar functionality in slide 20. You use page up to go to slide 15, and you use Ctrl-D to create a duplicate of slide 15 (now slide 16). What I am looking for is the short cut to MOVE that new slide past slides 17, 18, and 19, so it is now slide 20 without moving my hands off the keyboard. Does this make sense?

No shortcuts for moving, but in that case I would not duplicate, but copy, move to the correct place and paste there. Or make the filmstrip floating and expand its size, or use the Branching view
