Their is also a "View All Shortcuts" that redirect to https://confluence.atlassian.com/get-started-with-confluence-cloud/keyboard-shortcuts-934720180.html

But THAT page includes the statement "We could give you a list here, but then you'd need to keep referring to this page."... Which is kinda the point of the help-screen redirecting to THAT page!

Another note: https://community.atlassian.com/t5/Confluence-discussions/Confluence-guide-to-keyboard-shortcuts/m-p/706444#M1091

Is for the old editor and no longer applies, nor has it been updated.

Maybe THIS is a place that we can help Atlassian out and fully list ALL of their keyboard shortcuts.

By the way, 

https://jira.atlassian.com/browse/CONFCLOUD-66529 -- is a "Suggestion" that the documentation of the keyboard shortcuts actually matches what the app does (Atlassian doesn't want to mark any documentation errors as actual Bugs!)

https://jira.atlassian.com/browse/CONFCLOUD-66530 -- Is another "Suggestion" for Atlassian to make the keyboard shortcuts actually work as documented!

Here is a JQL query of the shortcut-related issues:
