Every tool is loaded with keyboard shortcuts. This makes it easier to invoke pretty much any action that a tool supports. Remembering all of these takes some time. You can speed up the process by keeping the Shortcuts Viewer handy.
The shortcuts are categorized by typical set of tasks and you can focus on ones that you do more frequently.
You can invoke the viewer using
U. It will start on the currently active tool if there is one present.
It can also be launched from the Menubar and the Dock Icon menu.
Every tool has some common shortcuts such as:
- Close tool with
- Reset active tool with
R. This will bring the tool back to its default settings.
If you are interested in invoking tools using a global hotkey, check out the Hotkeys tab of Preferences.
