Hello,

Sorry for asking such an obvious thing, but I must urgently do a job in SDL Edit and can't seem to find a list of the keyboard shortcuts for the basic translation tasks (I have used it in the past but don't remember the keyboard shortcuts). The help file amazingly doesn't provide an easily accessible list of this kind. (But then I am getting errors when opening the help file, so that might explain it.) Could anyone point me to a web page or other location with this list? A search on "keyboard" in the PDF file included in the documentation gets me shortcuts for format painting only. This is SDL Edit 2007 SP3. Thanks.

You can see them in the menu Mar 1, 2011

The available shortcuts are visible in the menu after the function names. I get along with the usual functions for copy and paste, Enter for confirmation and alt + number for a find from the TM. Otherwise I use the mouse. The usual shortcuts from Office work too.

Thanks Heinrich Mar 1, 2011

Thank you Heinrich, that was a kind answer from you. I must admit it was relatively obvious. I would look for the "blush" emoticon if I had the time but I don't
