I've commented on the Github page for the cheatsheet with this already, but maybe here is more appropriate. This only applies to the downloadable cheatsheet, not the actual article here, as far as I can see.

In your history expansion examples, you sometimes use multiple word designators in the same expansion, which doesn't work for me (Bash 4.3.11, Ubuntu). Minimal example:

$ echo a b
a b
$ echo !!:1:2
bash: 2: unrecognized history modifier

Is this something that used to work, or am I doing something wrong? The Bash manual only ever uses single designators in its examples.
