Quick Keys and Operations Summary

 

This section lists groups of all available Quick Keys also known as Keyboard Shortcuts and other main input device (described below as "mouse") commands.

Some commands will be different for the Mac and Windows operating system in which case both will be shown.

Important notes:

  1. Keyboard letters are shown in the charts below as Upper Case (capital letters) to match what is shown on a keyboard. However, these key commands must be entered as lower case (not capital letters).
    i.e. the SHIFT KEY should never be pressed in a command unless it is explicitly indicated.
  2. For the Mac OS, in the charts below:
CMD Key = CMD

3. The definition of a "Swipe" operation in a few descriptions below depends on the input device used (e.g. mouse, track ball, track pad, magic mouse, etc.). For example, a typical mouse "swipe" = Shift with scroll wheel.
