I’m always grateful for program ‘shortcuts’ (also known as hotkeys) that make writing easier, and here are a few I’ve found lately;
Using the following keys, these worked for me in a number of word processing programs as well as typing online;
Ctrl + B = bolds text
Ctrl + I = italic text
Shift + F5 = moves to last edit point.
F4 = repeats the last command
Shift + Ctrl + 8 = turns on and off the Show Hide function. This allows you to see the hidden details of your formatting. It helps to understand page breaks.
Double click– highlights a word
Ctrl + click- highlights sentence
Triple click– selects the entire paragraph. You can then click, hold, and drag wherever you want.
