In this Wiki article we will let you in on some handy keyboard shortcuts for using MadCap Flare.
When writing technical communication documents in Flare some keyboard shortcuts might come in handy. Because Flare is bound by html codes, it can sometimes be pretty difficult to find your way. We are used to working with WYSIWYG word processors, but Flare is a content-driven application. It is therefore not always easy for a new Flare user to know how to continue a (numbered or bullet) list when inserting a paragraph, or how to reuse content in different topics. We have listed some interesting keyboard shortcuts, so that you can save yourself time searching, clicking and finding your way in the Flare interface.
|Ctrl + Shift + S||Save all|
|Ctrl + Shift + Hyphen||Non-breaking hyphen|
|Ctrl + R||Insert snippet|
|Ctrl + G||Insert image|
|F10||Convert word to index keyword|
|Ctrl + ;||Insert paragraph in list|
|Ctrl + Shift + V||Insert variable|
|Shift + Tab||Convert list item a paragraph item|
|Ctrl + Shift + R||Insert cross-reference|
|Ctrl + Shift + T||Insert glossary term|
