Very good cheat sheet guys!
It would be very good, if you also include “most cool” keybinding:
Ctrl + B + W – List windows

The commands listed here for copy mode are not defaults (at least on the Ubuntu 18 repository version of tmux). It would be nice if you could list the settings used to avoid confusing users.

For others reading this site, most of the commands can be enabled using the option “set-window-option -g mode-keys vi”.
