Keyboard Shortcuts

This document lists the default keyboard shortcuts for Storyboard Pro.

NOTES
  • Some shortcuts require the use of more than one key. To use them, you must press and hold the first keys, then while holding those keys pressed, hit the last key. For example, the shortcut for the Brush tool is Alt + B. To use this shortcut, press and hold Alt, then hit B.
  • Some shortcuts are different on Windows and on macOS. This list displays the Windows in the Windows column and the macOS shortcut in the macOS column.
  • Commands that have no default shortcut are left blank in this list.
  • If you want to make note of your custom shortcuts, you can print this document and write them down in the Custom column.
