Description Nick 2011-08-11 07:16:26 UTC
I'd like to see a keyboard shortcut created for the Page Preview function. It's frustrating to have to always switch to the mouse in order to activate Page Preview.

Perhaps Ctrl + Shift + P would be a good choice for a Page Preview shortcut?
Comment 1 Cor Nouws 2011-08-15 15:22:50 UTC
I like the Ctrl-Shft-P idea ;-)
In the mean time, I use Alt-B-F (in Dutch) or ALt-F-G (in English UI)

You know you can set the shortcut yourself in Tools> Customize?

Thank you for pointing out these shortcuts. I did not know about them. Sorry for the bug report :D
Comment 3 Cor Nouws 2011-08-21 08:40:06 UTC
Thanks Nick, but we can leave this open as request, as long as no one proves it is not good ;-)
