Creating Your Own Keyboard Shortcuts

Create your own keyboard shortcuts by adding features you use frequently to the Quick Access Toolbar. Just right-click the button for any Storyline feature, then select Add to Quick Access Toolbar.

To launch any of the buttons on the Quick Access Toolbar via a keyboard shortcut, press and hold the Alt key on your keyboard and press the number key that matches the button you want to launch. For example, the first button on the Quick Access Toolbar is "1," the second button is "2," etc.
