I use this a lot but would have prefered page coords instead. I see what you mean about Shift F10 being inconsistent at first I too was like eric all seamed well but then oops its not haven't been able to work out why.
option+click master is nice

I don't think comm+F6 is listed for current font in usage and alt+comm+F6 for current pic in usage provided you have something selected. I use these with the more info option on.

I don't think either they are listed somewhere I know of.
Always good to know they exist! Thanks!

Didn't know about CMD+F6 and CMD+OPTN+F6. I will have to try those when I get to work.

Re, OPTN+F10 and cycling through masters, maybe I am just lucky. The only time I ever had an issue was with XPress 4.11 running under Classic. Anytime I went to a master and then used the key command, bang XPress quit. Strangely enough, it's been working fine just recently (although I have only recently tried this again). But I've never had the issue in XPress 6.

This might be a simple one you guys already know about, but if you select an image and then hit OPTN+F13, your Usage box for images will come up with the selected image highlighted in the box. I use this as a quick way sometimes to find out the name of an image and it's path. (Yeah, I have Badia's XT, but sometimes this is faster in a given situation for me.)

EDIT: I finally tried this at work and it seems to be the same as the tip I just suggested above. Interesting.

Its Shift F10 that's "broken"

Option F10 still seems to do the trick. And its a nice one.

Not quite a keyboard-only shortcut, but gives me that same groovy feeling:

When you need to do a thumb drag between two open documents:

Hold down Option, go to the Window menu, and select "Tile"



God I love finding these. I got this one from a cranky old coworker who's about to retire in January.

On a Mac, I think that  ctrl-shift-cmd-]  or [  for adjusting wordspacing of selected text by 10 units of an em is fairly well-known...
but crtl-shift-alt-cmd-] or [  for single units seems to be less well known.

Anything involving the use of 5 keys is of uncertain status as keyboard shortcut unless you have the manual dexterity of a flautist, but it seems to be the only way of doing it!

I just discovered a new one (on 7.5): Cmd-Shift-clicking the green button in the upper left corner of the window has a drop down menu that is a simplified version of the Window menu.
Don't know if it is of any help to some of you though  :)
