Chapter 1. The Tools Palette > Navigation Tools

Navigation Tools

Like QuarkXPress, InDesign provides some tools for navigating through your document.

Grabber Hand

Just as in XPress, you can use the Grabber Hand tool (press H) to scroll around a page or even between pages. With the Grabber Hand tool, you may never need to use the scroll bars to move around your document again. While XPress lets you press the Option/Alt key to temporarily activate the Grabber Hand tool, InDesign reserves the Option/Alt key for duplicating objects. So, in InDesign you get the Grabber Hand temporarily by holding down the space bar while using other tools, or holding down the Option/Alt key if you’re editing text with the Type tool.
