Ah, I missed that one.  I don't think there is room to add a line.
You'll have to choose between the two.

They work for me.  If I type C-h and follow the directions (I type ?
and then, say, b to get a list of bindings), I get a new window with a
*Help* buffer and I can use C-M-v to scroll it and C-x 1 to get rid of

I don't think there is room for an extra line, but you can try.

On a 2 or 3 column refcard, the two are side by side.  Moving them
