We’ve made it even easier to fly through your proofing with our keyboard shortcuts. A list of these are below but if you want to refresh your memory, click the magic icon, then the keyboard shortcuts icon when viewing a proof.

Keyboard shortcuts

All proofs

  • c to toggle the red pen comment tool on and off
  • shift + enter (or command + enter) to add a comment or reply
    < and > to reveal and hide the comment pane
  • * will invert the proof pin colors
  • \ will hide the pins
  • f to turn on focus mode
  • dd to turn on dark mode

For static proofs (images, PDFs, Word documents, PowerPoint etc):

  • left and right arrow keys to move through pages of your proof
  • p will take you to the page grid view
  • 0, 1, 2, 4 will zoom the proof (fit, 100%, 200%, 400%) – up and down arrow keys to move through the zoom positions, shift + up and shift + down will nudge the zoom by 5%.
  • z + scroll will zoom between these zoom states.
