Chapter 5. Defining Preferences > Setting Keyboard Shortcuts

Setting Keyboard Shortcuts

In line with configuring preferences is the ability to customize your own keyboard shortcut keys. Out-of-the-box, Dreamweaver maps most of its functionality to specific keyboard shortcut keys. Although some keyboard shortcuts may not seem all that familiar, most operations such as Ctrl+O/Option+O (Open), Ctrl+S/Option+S (Save), Ctrl+A/Option+A (Select All), Ctrl+C/Option+C (Copy), Ctrl+X/Option+X (Cut), and Ctrl+V/Option+V (Paste) are used in countless other programs and are easily recognizable in Dreamweaver. Other shortcuts, however, might seem new and unfamiliar, and might even be too long to remember. For this reason, Dreamweaver allows you to remap all keyboard shortcut keys to your liking and then print them to use as a reference while you develop.

Mapping your own keyboard shortcuts is easy and begins with the Keyboard Shortcuts dialog, available by choosing Edit, Keyboard Shortcuts (see Figure 5.26).
