KEYBOARD SHORTCUTS

This document is devoted to using the keyboard instead of the mouse to perform tasks within applications. This list is by no means the "be all and end all". There are many more Keyboard Shortcuts, which can be found by looking under HELP and then under Shortcut keys or Keyboard Shortcuts, in the respective applications.

Note: Throughout this document you will see references to pressing more than one key at a time for example (Ctrl + C ) to copy text. The ( + ) characters are not meant to be used, they are simply used to infer that more than one key must be pressed at the same time.
