Creating Keyboard Shortcuts

Dreamweaver uses built-in keyboard shortcuts designed specifically for Dreamweaver. A complete list of the keyboard shortcuts is available in the back of this book. The built-in keyboard shortcuts are organized into sets, which you can duplicate and customize to create your own personalized set. If you use other programs, such as Adobe Illustrator or Adobe Photoshop, and you are more comfortable using their keyboard shortcuts for common commands, you can select a built-in keyboard shortcut set from any of the graphics programs to use in Dreamweaver.

Create a Keyboard Shortcut Set

  1. Click the Dreamweaver (Mac) or Edit (Win) menu, and then click Keyboard Shortcuts.
  2. Click the Current Set popup, and then select a set.
  3. Click the Duplicate Set button.
  4. Type a name for the new shortcut set.
  5. Click OK.

Add or Remove a Keyboard Shortcut

  1. Click the Dreamweaver (Mac) or Edit (Win) menu, and then click Keyboard Shortcuts.
  2. Click the Current Set popup, and then select the set in which you want to change.
  3. Click the Commands popup, and then select a shortcut category, such as Drawing Menu Commands, Drawing Tools, Test Movie Menu Commands, and Workplace Accessibility Commands.
  4. Select the command for which you want to add or remove a shortcut in the Commands list.
  5. Do the following:
    • To add a shortcut, click the Add Shortcut (+) button, and then press the key combination to enter the new shortcut key in the Press Key box.
    • To remove a shortcut, click the Remove Shortcut (-) button.
  6. Click Change.
  7. To add or remove additional shortcuts, repeat Steps 2-6.
