Cool moves for Corel DESIGNER


Functions are called, objects are transformed, views change – what seems like magic to casual users is an everyday tool that saves a lot of time for power users: shortcuts in Corel DESIGNER.
Functions are often hidden in menus, sub-menus, sub-sub-menus, context menus or dockers in any sophisticated software. To reach them, users have to make several clicks. Long ways that can also be shortened: Shortcuts, also called key combinations, keyboard shortcuts or hotkeys, make it possible to trigger extensive actions with combinations of two or more keys. This not only impresses your colleagues, but also saves a lot of time with a little routine.

In Corel DESIGNER, the shortcuts are displayed after each command in menus and context menus or in the function’s tooltip.
