I've been putting this together for the most common actions that I'm finding that I use during a restore, thought I'd share since some of them are really handy (like using Shift+F5/F6/F7 to fill, feather, or invert a selection respectively, or Shift+'+'/'-' to cycle through blending modes and Alt+Shift+n to reset to normal).
