Keyboard shortcuts

Although PDXpert offers a sophisticated graphical user interface, you can still execute many commands with your keyboard.

In general, the keyboard Enter key performs the same function as clicking an on-screen OK button.

When pressing more than one key, you should hold down the keyboard keys in the sequence shown, and then release them in reverse sequence. For example, to use the Ctrl+C shortcut, you'd press the Ctrl key, then the C, then release the C, and finally release the Ctrl key. When using the Alt and Ctrl keys, you do not use the Shift key unless noted; there may be a difference between Ctrl+C and Ctrl+Shift+C.
