Handy Keyboard Shortcuts in Acrobat 6

Part of the Adobe Acrobat 6 PDF For Dummies Cheat Sheet

Adobe Acrobat 6 is chock-full of keyboard shortcuts. To make these keystrokes work, choose Edit→Preferences or press Ctrl+K (Acrobat→Preferences or Command+K on Mac) to open the Preferences dialog box. Choose General on the scroll list to display those options in the dialog box, and in the Miscellaneous area, select the Use Single-Key Accelerators to Access Tools check box, and then click OK.

When the feature is activated, the ToolTips that appear when you hover the mouse pointer over a button tool show not only the tool's name but its keystroke shortcut, or single-key accelerators, as Adobe likes to call them.

The following table shows the shortcut keystrokes for all the tools in Acrobat 6 that use the single-key accelerators feature:
