Keyboard Shortcuts

Prev Top Next More


Keyboard shortcuts allow end users to interact with VertiGIS Studio Web using a keyboard instead of a mouse. The current UI component is highlighted with a border, which is blue by default. Keyboard shortcuts do not interfere with or prevent the user from using the mouse—the user can go back and forth between keyboard shortcuts and the mouse.

VertiGIS Studio Web uses standard shortcuts to navigate the page and select or activate items.
