From the peanut gallery, +1.

In MSWord, you could use the settings to avoid widows and orphans.  I don't 
know if there are similar commands for a .pdf file (and I'm not sure what 
program you are using to print the shortcuts (I wasn't reading the other 
posts that carefully).

I would guess that many people will want the shortcuts printed as compactly as 
possible (like one sheet, front and back) as it may be a reference that they 
want to keep near their computer.
