Keyboard shortcuts for WordPerfect’s CUA (Windows) keyboard — Part II

October 17, 2009 at 10:28 am

As promised, here are a few more keyboard shortcuts for WordPerfect’s standard Windows keyboard (also known as the CUA, or Common User Access, keyboard).

Keystrokes for Navigation

Many of WordPerfect’s CUA keyboard shortcuts for navigating through a document will look familiar because they’re standard keystrokes used by most Windows programs. There are exceptions to that rule, however.

Ctrl Home — Moves the cursor to the beginning of a document

Ctrl Home, Ctrl Home — Moves the cursor to the beginning of a document and positions it to the left of any codes in the doc (except the OpenStyle:DocumentStyle code, which ordinarily remains fixed at the very top)

Ctrl End — Moves the cursor to the end of a document

Home — Places the cursor at the beginning of a line

Home, Home — Places the cursor at the beginning of a line, to the left of any codes in that line

End — Puts the cursor at the end of a line

Pg Dn — Moves the cursor to the bottom of a screen (as opposed to the bottom of a page)

Pg Up — Moves the cursor to the top of a screen (as opposed to the top of a page)

Alt Pg Dn — Moves to the next page

Alt Pg Up — Moves to the previous page

Alt Shift Pg Dn — Selects the next page

Alt Shift Pg Up — Selects the previous page

Ctrl right arrow — Moves to the next word

Ctrl left arrow — Moves to the previous word

Ctrl G — Opens the “Go To” dialog, allowing you to move to a specific page, line, table, table row, table of contents entry, WP code, and so on.

Note that in recent versions of WP, once you have entered a specific page number (etc.) and clicked “Go To,” the dialog loses its focus, so that you can’t dismiss it by pressing the Esc key (or even by pressing Alt C to emulate clicking the “Close” button), as was possible in older versions. Instead, you must use the mouse and click “Close.”

Ctrl F6 — Moves to the next open document

Ctrl Shift F6 — Moves to the previous open document

Miscellaneous Keystrokes — Creating Documents / Inserting Objects into a Document

Ctrl N or Shift F4 — Starts a new blank document

Ctrl Shift N — Invokes New From Project (i.e., opens the Create New dialog so that you can create a document based on a template)

Ctrl Shift B — Inserts a bullet (i.e., starts a bulleted list)

Ctrl F11 — Inserts a horizontal line at the cursor position

Ctrl Shift F11 — Inserts a page-length vertical line at the cursor position

F12 — Opens the Create Table dialog box

Alt Ins — Inserts a table row above the cursor position

Alt Shift Ins — Inserts a table row below the cursor position

Alt Del — Deletes the current table row (the row the cursor is in)

Ctrl D — Inserts the current date as text (i.e., not as a code) at the cursor position

Ctrl Shift D — Inserts an automatic date code at the cursor position (date will change to reflect the current date — as set in the computer — when the document is opened or printed)

Ctrl – (hyphen) — Inserts a “hard” (non-breaking) hyphen

Ctrl space — Inserts a “hard” (non-breaking) space

* * * * *

That’s all for now. I’ll post additional CUA keystrokes for WordPerfect soon.
