Fly through your proofing with keyboard shortcuts

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 keyboard shortcuts icon when viewing a proof.

  • c to toggle the red pen comment tool on and off
  • shift+c to switch between pen tools
  • shift+enter to add a comment or reply
  • g will turn on gridlines and - will turn on the ruler tool
  • < and > to reveal and hide the comment pane
  • \ will hide the pins
  • * will invert the proof pin colours
  • If the proof has comments, use cmd+p to print the comments list
  • f will take you into focus mode
  • i will reveal and hide the proof info pane.

For static proofs:

  • Use the left and right arrow keys to move through pages of your proof and p will take you to the page grid view
  • 0 1 2 4 will zoom the proof (fit, 100%, 200%, 400%)
  • shift+up and shift+down will nudge the zoom in and out
  • z+scroll zooms between states
  • Use the up and down arrow keys to move through the zoom positions
  • r will rotate the proof clockwise. shift+r will rotate the proof counter-clockwise
  • [ and ] will add an outline.

For audio and video proofs:

  • Use the left and right arrow keys to move through comment positions along the timeline
  • space will play/pause and f will take your video to full screen.

For collections of proofs:

  • Use the shift+left and shift+right to navigate through proofs inside a collection.

In any area of PageProof m will open and close the main menu and n will do the same for notifications./ will open the global search.

You can also customise these keys just for you. Reveal the keyboard shortcuts when viewing a proof and double click a grey key icon to personalise it.

Nice and simple, just like PageProof.
