App Designer Keyboard Shortcuts

As PeopleSoft developers we spend a lot of time in Application Designer. To speed things up and make you more efficient, it helps to learn some of the common keyboard shortcuts. This wiki article provides a list of some of these shortcuts for your reference (and I'll keep adding to this list with contributions from the PeopleSoft community)

Note many of these shortcuts involve pressing the ALT key to active the menu and the correct sequence of letters quickly.
