KompoZer Keyboard Shortcuts

Using Shortcuts

This document uses the following format for listing shortcuts:


Command Windows/Mac OS/Unix/Linux
Copy Ctrl+C/Cmd+C

To perform a command, press the accelerator key Ctrl/Cmd and the press the shortcut combination key C once (while keeping the accelerator key pressed).

Tip: The plus sign (+) means that you must press two keys surrounding the plus sign at the same time. If there is more than one plus sign (such as Ctrl+Shift+C), it means that all three buttons surrounding the plus sign must be pressed at the same time.


Note: Some keyboard shortcuts perform different functions based on cursor location (focus). For example, if you press Home on Windows while viewing a web page, KompoZer will move to the top of the web page. However, if you press Home on Windows while the cursor is in a text field, the cursor will go to the beginning of the text field.
