In InDesign CS4 Power Shortcuts, Adobe product manager and designer Michael Ninness reveals hundreds of tips to boost productivity, including the top 20 power shortcuts every InDesign user must know. From placing multiple images to the hidden power of Quick Apply, each one of these videos covers an important topic, and includes just the right amount of information to make anyone a true InDesign power user. InDesign users are always looking for faster, more efficient ways to do everything, and this course offers just what they're looking for. Exercise files accompany the course.
When you have multiple documents opened as tabs, of course there is a way to cycle through them with keyboard shortcuts rather than having to use your mouse. Traditional way is to click on the tabs. There you go. But you can also do with the keyboard. The keyboard shortcut is Command+Tilde or Ctrl+Tilde. Tilde is the little squiggly key on US keyboards. It's to the left of the number 1 key. On other language keyboards the Tilde location changes, but for most folks, using an English keyboard at least, it will be in the upper left-hand corner, next the Escape key. So Command+Tilde, Ctrl+Tilde will go to the next document in the list from left to right. Command+Shift+Tilde or Ctrl+Shift+Tilde will go backwards.
So it's very similar to switching between tabs in an Internet browser. You can do the same thing, not just in InDesign but all the Adobe applications that support the tabbed document interface.
