Magnetosphere shortcuts

The built-in iTunes music visualiser, Magenetosphere (the best of the 5 provided visualisers in my opinion), has a few advertised and a few hidden 'shortcuts' to change settings. Unfortunately I haven't found one that saves the settings for when you next start the visualisation.
If you find any more shortcuts, please let me know!
