Navigate Designer Studio menus with the keyboard

Updated on August 9, 2017

In addition to navigating through the menus in Designer Studio by using the mouse, you can use the keyboard to access and search the menu options. Press Ctrl+Shift+P (Command+Shift+P on a Mac) to display the command palette. The palette displays all the options that are available in the header, including the Designer Studio, Application, Launch, Create, Resources, and Operator menus. Use the Up Arrow key and Down Arrow key to navigate through the menu structure.
