Keyboard shortcuts

Hi, all;


I appreciate that several people have put together keyboard shortcut lists, but I still find myself looking for several that I haven't seen documented anywhere.  I know that not all of these may even have shortcuts, but I figure it wouldn't hurt to ask.


Bring stage object forward

Bring stage object to front

Send stage object backward

Send stage object to back


Switch focus from object on stage to object on timeline

Select next/previous object (on stage, like you can do with arrows on timeline)

Move playhead to beginning of slide timeline

Snap end of object timeline to playhead (the opposite of Ctrl-L).


Move slide up in filmstrip

Move slide down in filmstrip


Thanks in advance for any help on this!

    Hi Amy,


    Not much to add for concerning shortcuts:

    Shortcuts for Arrangement (back/forward..) are listed in the menu Arrange all with brackets, but I'm not using them because they are only functional on a QWERTY (I'm on AZERTY)


    No way to switch focus from object on stage to timeline AFAIK, and if I want to move through selecting objects I'm doing it on the timeline, where you already discovered the arrows. On stage you can use the TAB-key but it will start from the bottom of the stack on the timeline.


    Move playhead to start timeline (when timeline is in focus): Home


    No snap end of object timeline to playhead, have introduced already multiple times a feature request about that.


    Move slide up/down in filmstip (or even sometimes no need for focus on filmstrip): PageUp/PageDown


    I told you I'm a shortcut freak

    Bring Forward    CTRL+]

    Send Backward    CTRL+[

    Bring to Front    SHIFT+CTRL+]

    Send to Back    SHIFT+CTRL+[


    I'm on CP 5.5


    No shortcuts for moving, but in that case I would not duplicate, but copy, move to the correct place and paste there. Or make the filmstrip floating and expand its size, or use the Branching view
