The frequent use of shortcuts in software applications -- typically triggered by special keystroke combinations -- can lead to greater efficiency and at the same time, help combat repetitive stress ailments often resulting from prolonged mouse driving. Adobe Acrobat includes a wealth of such time-saving keystrokes, but they're only useful if you learn what and where they are. Unless you have a great memory for such tidbits, it's likely you've overlooked or forgotten many Acrobat shortcuts that could become blessings. To establish some healthy habits, however, a simple guide would be handy: A shortcut to the shortcuts.
Shlomo Perets of MicroType, who has created similar guides in the past for previous versions of Acrobat (and Adobe FrameMaker), recently posted a one-page PDF -- Adobe Acrobat Professional 7 Shortcuts (Windows) [PDF: 160kb] -- that provides a clean overview of shortcuts in several categories:
In Navigation Pane
Files & Dialog Boxes
Find & Search
Capturing Web Pages
Perets is also the author of the "PDF Best Practices Series" article series, and a well-known trainer, consultant, speaker and FrameMaker-to-PDF expert. The latest schedule of training classes is available from the MicroType Web site.
