about the line:
- you can draw one line per click-and-drag and when you release the mouse button, the command is still active
- or you can draw a line with two clicks (as usual) and the make an doubleclick -> command stays active too
To find out, which command are associated with wich shortcuts, you can use the customize function / go to keyboard / and select show command with shortcuts.
In this dialog you are able to customize these settings.

Are there a series of keyboard based shortcuts for SW 2016?
so.. the space bar gives you the view cube which is nifty but is there more? !
For example, when sketching using the line tool, click start point, click end point, then want to drop the line to start again another new line -
Press escape and you have to reselect the line tool. . . . there must be a better way!!
Thanks in advance!!
Just to add to Peter De Vlieger's reply above.
Once you get to that list under customize, you can click on the Copy List icon to send a copy of the list to the Windows clipboard or the Print List icon to Surprise print the list.
Thank you all for your help, Much appreciated !
I discovered the S shortcut by accident also which is also really handy!
I recommend to use the shortcut menu in combination with mouse gestures. I use the shortcut menu to call features, the mouse gestures is set to 8 and i use it for calling the views. This is easy to handle and pretty fast! Don't forget: mouse gestures are shown only, if your cursor is placed over the background, not on the model!

I am guessing that you mean in assemblies, you cannot right drag to get mouse gestures while on a component. This is because right drag on a component in assembly is defined as rotate component. However, you can use Alt-right drag in assemblies while your mouse is over a component while in assemblies. This is document in the note towards the bottom of this help topic:
I hope this helps,
