Best Acrobat keyboard shortcuts -- a handy list

June 16, 2011


Having used Acrobat for many years now, I've gotten used to using keyboard shortcuts to do many PDF actions. The reason that most people don't use Acrobat more -- in my opinion -- is that they find it awkward to work with. In other words, they don't know the important keyboard shortcuts.

Learning the keyboard shortcuts takes a bit of time; mostly, you have to train yourself to use them instead of the mouse. But once you make these shortcuts a habit you'll find that using Acrobat is actually easier than working with paper.

I've compiled a list of the shortcuts that are most essential for what a lawyer or legal professional would use on a day-to-day basis. Download this PDF cheat sheet (right click and choose "save as"); then learn these keyboard commands and you'll find that working with PDFs is super-easy.
