My Top 10 Acrobat Keyboard Shortcuts

By David Mankin

Here are my top 10 favorite keyboard shortcuts that I have grown to rely on in Acrobat 9 Professional.  You may know all of them, some of them, or maybe none at all.  Everyone uses their applications differently.  I used to be a mega-mouse-clicker.  Over the years, I have grown to use, appreciate and ultimately rely on keyboard shortcuts to help streamline my workflow.  So, here they are… My Top Ten Acrobat 9 Professional Keyboard Shortcuts:

Drum roll, please…
10.   Ctrl-6 Insert Sticky Note

9.      Shift-Ctrl-D Delete Pages

8.      Ctrl-R Show/Hide Rulers (yes, Acrobat DOES have rulers!)

7.      Ctrl-U Show/Hide Grid (yep – Acrobat has a design grid too!)

6.      Alt-Left Arrow Previous View

5.      Ctrl-0 (zero) Fit Page

4.      Shift-Ctrl-1 Open Organizer

3.      Shift-Ctrl-F Search

2.      Ctrl-D Document Properties

 …and the number 1 keyboard shortcut is…

1.      Ctrl-K Preferences

There are many, many more waiting to be discovered and learned.
