What can I say that the title doesn’t already? Here is a list of the most useful keyboard shortcuts that I use in iWeb. I must admit I am normally a ‘mouse-click and menu’ sort of a person but since I started using Adobe Illustrator I have found myself using shortcuts more and more. So here is the list.
Shift-Command-L This shows and hides the layout gridlines. I probably use this keyboard shortcut more than any other.
Command-Return When you are typing in a text box and you realise you need to make it a bit bigger, use this shortcut to select the box rather than its contents.
Command-Drag Handle Rotate an object. I can never which tab of the Inspector has the rotate function in it so this one is a godsend.
Command-Drag Turn off alignment guides whilst dragging an object. If you are trying to create a more free-style layout in your web-site nothing can be more annoying than dragging an object and seeing those little blue lines popping up left, right and centre!!!
Shift-Command-B This sends the selected object ‘to the back’. This is very handy if you have plenty of overlapping elements on your site. (Shift-Option-Command-B sends an object back one layer).
Shift-Command-F This does the opposite of the above and brings the selected object ‘to the front’. (Shift-Option-Command-F bings an object forward one layer).
Command-Plus sign (+) Increases the size of the font. I find this one really handy (and the next shortcut) when I am adding titles to pages.
Command-Minus sign (-) decreases the size of the font.
Option-Command-C Copies the paragraph style. If I am not happy with the default theme’s paragraph style I like to get it looking how I like on the home page then select the whole paragraph (3 clicks of the mouse) and then I can paste/apply that style on any subsequent paragraphs I type on the rest of the site (using Option-Command-V).
Command-? Shows iWeb Help. Okay, so I am still learning and even I need help every now and again.
A full list of iWeb keyboard shortcuts can be found in the support section of the Apple site.
If you have a keyboard shortcut(s) that you find useful why not let us know.
