Sublime Text 3 (QWERTY/Z) Keyboard Shortcuts by

Bindings for Sublime Text 3, from Version 3.2.2, file: Default(Windows).sublime-keymap. There's some more in there, plus lots of opportunity for customization! I've included the 'alternatives' that a QWERTZ keyboard defaults to because of key IDs mapping differently. Tested on Win10, Needed to set alternatives in User keymap for Linux.
