Shortcut Keys

Previous pageReturn to chapter overviewNext page

A "shortcut key" is a function key or key combination that executes a command directly, so you don't need to use the menus.

Some shortcut keys are specific to the active view. If the wrong view is active they won't work. The view is indicated by the [xxx view] comments in the table below.
