Keyboard Shortcuts

There are a number of Shortcut Keys defined for Insight Maker.

  • Control/Command + B Bold the style of the currently selected primitives.
  • Control/Command + I Italicize the style of the currently selected primitives.
  • Control/Command + U Underline the style of the currently selected primitives.

  • Control/Command + C Copy the selected primitives. Note that Insight Maker does not actually have access to your system's clipboard so you can only Copy and Paste within the context of a single Insight.
  • Control/Command + V Paste whatever is on the local clipboard.
  • Control/Command + X Cut the currently selected primitives to the local clipboard.
  • Delete Deletes the currently selected Primitives.

  • Control/Command + Z Undo the previous command.
