Markup Keyboard Shortcuts


'SHIFT' key 

All shortcuts that include an upward arrow ( ) indicate that you need to hold down the ‘SHIFT’ key while pressing the additional letter/function key.

For example, to use the add polygon shortcut, hold down ‘SHIFT’ and press the letter “p”. Once you release both keys, you should see a “Click to add Polygon” function on your mouse.
