For faster and more efficient creation of processes, you can use keyboard shortcuts in the flow diagram. Using keyboard shortcuts also supports accessibility and provides a better experience for developers who rely on a keyboard while developing an application.
You can use the following keyboard shortcuts when you create a process in a flow diagram:
|Shift + mouse click
|Selects an item or removes it from the rest of the selected items.
For example, you can select multiple flow shapes so that you can delete more than one shape at once.
|Delete or Backspace
|Deletes the selected items.
|Ctrl + A
|Selects all objects on the canvas.
|Temporarily switches between pan mode and select mode.
|Secondary mouse button + drag
|Temporarily pans the canvas when in select mode or temporarily selects items when in pan mode.
|+ (Windows) or = (Mac OS)
|Ctrl + M
|Toggles between full screen and the normal canvas.
|Exits the current operation.
|Ctrl + S
|Double click on the canvas
|Centers and fits the screen diagram.
