Shortcuts by group

Shortcuts in function alphabetical order arranged according to whether they affect the Entry/ies, the Active model or the Program. Many will be familiar to you because they are standard Windows controls. The remainder as, as far as possible, easy to remember through mnemonics (e.g. ctrl+j is jump) or position (e.g. Home moves an entry to the heading area)

See Keyboard and mouse shortcuts where they're arranged in keystroke alphabetical order within BrainStorm activity - Any, Navigate or Entry edit.
