Okay – last set of keystroke tips and then next time it’s an entirely different topic!
The Esc key closes whatever window you’re in
Pop-up calculator – hit an operator(+,-,*,/) when you’re in a numeric field and voila – up pops a calculator – now you don’t need to copy & paste your answer!
The date shortcuts below you can use whenever you’re in a date field. I find that they are frequently faster than using the calendar. If you keep pressing the same key, it continues in the same direction (i.e. hitting the + multiple times keeps moving forward in time, pressing M multiple times keeps taking you to an earlier month). The letters are not case-sensitive, either.
|Same date in previous week||
|Same date in next week||
|Same date in last month||
|Same date in next month||
|First day of the Week||
|Last day of the weeK||
|First day of the Month||
|Last day of the montH||
|First day of the Year||
|Last day of the yeaR||
I think my favorite date shortcut is T for today. What’s yours?
