You’ve been there.
You’re trying to remember the keyboard shortcut for a particular command, and you’re drawing a blank.
You decide to go into the help screen only to discover that there are about 16 pages of keyboard shortcuts to scroll through in order to find that one you need.
With the time you’ve spent trying to locate the shortcut, you could have just entered the information the long way and been done.
Now it’s several minutes later, and you still haven’t found that shortcut and the information you were going to enter using the darn thing still isn’t on the page.
Here, you’ll find very detailed Quick Reference cards, or “cheat sheets,” with the most popular keyboard shortcuts and excellent tips and tricks to move you along much faster in your projects.
These guides are beautifully-created, full-color PDFs. Printed front and back on cardstock, or even on just plain copy paper, the guides are perfectly suitable for high-quality giveaways to employees, clients and/or students.
