Shortcuts

Overview

theWord uses several  keyboard shortcuts to access functions that are also available via menus and toolbars. There are three types of shortcuts:

1.Global shortcuts which are active independently of which is the active view or control
2.View specific shortcuts that apply only to the active view (to activate a view you click anywhere in the view's rectangle)
3.Control specific shortcuts that apply to the active control (to activate a control you click on that control)
