Personally I prefer to hit the save button
Keyboard shortcuts are fine but should never be taken as a guarantee to my mind
I have had problems in the past with other programs where you think your keyboard shortcut has worked but hasn’t
I suspect that we have all had the classic is to do a Control-C to copy something and when you do the paste it isn’t what you think it should be

Subject: [family-historian] Print to PDF no longer creates a file
Today, I modified one of my charts and went to print it as a PDF file. The print/save process seemed to work normally, but it never created the PDF file. In addition, it deleted the previous version of that file, which I intentionally wanted to over-write with my changes. That's not a big loss, except I didn't get the new file. I tried this several times being careful to check the options to make sure I was doing it the same way I've done it many times in the past. I even closed the program and rebooted the computer to see if that would fix the problem; it didn't. I'm using a desktop PC with a lot of memory and the very latest version of Windows 10. Does anyone know what's going on?
In addition, Family Historian failed to save the changes to the chart I was working on for over an hour. I used Ctrl+S to save the file after each significant change, but when I reloaded the chart after rebooting the computer, the old version came up! When I looked in the Charts directory, I could see that file still had the old date from the last time I worked on this chart. I suspect this failure to save the chart revisions is related to the problem of saving the PDF file, but I can't imagine what is causing this unless FH 6.2.7 is no longer compatible with some recent update to Windows 10.
