Buttons and Shortcut Keystrokes

Many of the more commonly-used menu selections have buttons in the toolbar for one-click access. Quick access to certain program features is also provided through the built-in shortcut keys. The relevant key combinations are listed in the program menus beside their particular function. To use a shortcut, press and hold the Ctrl key, then click the letter key shown, and then release both keys. (It is not necessary to release the keys at the same time, it is only important that both keys are pressed at the same time.)
