— Where can I see the changelog?

On the Releases page.

— How to restore default Sketch shortcuts?

Use «Restore Default Shortcuts...» command from plugin menu. It should remove any user shortcut data includinge one that defined directly in System Preferences.

— How Keys will affect a custom shortcuts I defined earlier in System Preferences?

Since Keys are using default system storage for shortcuts it shouldn't affect without additional user actions like «Restore Default Shortcuts...» command from plugin menu.

— Can't see my Keys shortcuts in System Preferences. Is something wrong?

Since System Preferences caches shortcut values from storage once upon startup you need to completely relaunch it to get updated shortcut data there.

— What happens with my custom shortcuts if I remove Keys?

Nothing because all your shortcuts were defined in System Preferences.

— I removed Keys and my custom shortcuts manually from System Preferences, but tools with single-character shortcuts (like Pencil or Vector) are still using previously defined values. How to reset it to defaults too?

Since Sketch manages single character shortcuts by itself, you should delete keyBindings.plist from ~/Library/Application Support/com.bohemiancoding.sketch3/ folder and restart Sketch to return default tools shortcuts.

— Some menu items aren't shown in Keys. How to fix?

Access these menu items manually through app menu and Keys should show it properly.
