The following sections present shortcut keys that are specific to the Multi-board Schematic Editor. For general information regarding shortcut keys - including access and editing, general Altium environment shortcuts, and accelerator keys - see Altium Designer Shortcut Keys.
When looking at the shortcut key listings, keep in mind the following:
The following shortcuts are standard to the Multi-board Schematic Editor. They are available in general and do not require you to be performing an interactive process to access them.
|Modify the properties of the object currently under the cursor.
|Access context menu for the design space. If currently within an interactive command, will escape from the current operation.
|Select the object currently under the cursor.
|On an object to add it to the current selection (cumulative selection).
|Select all objects on the current document.
|Click (on an object), Hold&Drag

|Mirror the currently selected module(s) along the X-axis.
|Mirror the currently selected module(s) along the Y-axis.
Viewing the Multi-board Schematic Sheet
|Change the view in the main design window so that the document is made completely visible (where possible).
|Zoom-in, relative to the current cursor location.
You can also use the mouse to zoom in to a region of the document by one of the following methods (where applicable and depending on how the buttons of your mouse might be assigned):

The following shortcuts become available when an interactive process has been launched, such as placing a new design object, or moving an existing one. Note that the shortcuts available will depend on the interactive command and the specific design object that is the focus of that command.
|Escape from the current process - either a stage of the currently running interactive command or the command itself.
|Remove the last placed segment, while placing a region.
