Appendix H: Shortcuts Cheat Sheet


Shortcuts are essential to making the most of InDesign. Sure, you can access everything from a menu or pane, but shortcuts make the work much faster. This appendix covers InDesign's keyboard shortcuts and working with contextual menus , which lets you use the mouse to find out what options are available for specific objects.

Because there are so many keyboard shortcuts, I've broken them into functional areas to help you find them more easily in the following table.
