Recommended Keyboard Shortcuts to Add
Modifying the default keyboard shortcut keys allows you to take advantage of potential shortcuts that do not come as defaults in EditPlus. Below is a list of recommendations from users.
To allow easy switching of documents
- WindowPrev as Alt + Left Arrow (Ctrl+shift+Tab)
- WindowNext as Alt + Right Arrow (Ctrl+Tab)
Easily close current document
- FileClose as Ctrl + W
Easily switch the current file type
This lets you quickly set the syntax highlighting to use after pasting some text into a temporary document.
- DocChangeSyntax as Ctrl + Shift + T
- FileOpenRemote as Ctrl + Alt + O
- FileSaveRemote as Ctrl + Alt + S
- HTMLBreak (<br>) as Shift + Enter
- HTMLNbsp ( ) as Shift + Space
- HTMLParagraph (<p>) as Ctrl + Enter
Suggested Keyboard Shortcut Changes
Ctrl + D: inserting the current date is something I rarely use, so I have this key delete the current line instead
- Old command: EditDate
- New command: EditDeleteLine
F5: if you don't use the cliptext or directory windows you may want this key to reload the current document
- Old command: ViewToggleFocus
- New command: DocReload
