Hotkeys and Keyboard Shortcuts

Hotkeys and keyboard shortcuts can speed up your workflow and make EnvisioKnit faster and easier to use. They can be particularly helpful if you frequently repeat a particular task, such as exporting patterns, or switching between charts. EnvisioKnit currently supports the hotkeys that are listed below.

Note that hotkeys are case-sensitive, so the same key may have different functions for upper and lower case.

This listing shows the hotkey mapping for the Mac version. The keys are nearly the same for Windows And Mac, but use different modifier keys (Alt vs Option, Ctrl vs Command). Click here to see the hotkeys for the Windows version.
