A Better QRC for Mastercam

A Quick Reference Card for Mastercam that you can edit and customize!

Ok, ok. Maybe it's just me and I need to renew my eyeglass prescription. Or maybe the text is actually getting smaller on these Quick Reference cards! Either way, I need a solution and here it is!
The QRC, or Quick Reference Card, in Mastercam is a small cheat sheet for some common functions in Mastercam. It contains a list of the default keyboard shortcuts plus some additional information on a few functions on the second page. For the most part, users are mainly interested in that list of Keyboard Shortcuts. 
I too like to have this list close by and prefer to have it printed out for quick access. Now, I ran into a bit of a problem when I printed out the 2022 version. I could barely read the text! In years past I didn't think the text was this small but maybe it's just me. Unfortunately, these PDF docs that come with Mastercam are not editable so you cannot change the text size.  The only solution is to make my own!
I've done all the hard work for the rest of you who are visually compromised like me :). Feel free to download these docs below. You can edit the Word docs as you see fit. The PDFs are also editable if you have the software.
