EDAPT Keyboard Shortcuts Set

As EDAP Tools evolve, EDAPT Shortcuts become more closely integrated and, unfortunately, less optional than in the previous versions. Since we keep pushing the boundaries of what Flash can do, we need to rely on heavily modified shortcut set and approaches to developing that set which are not available via Flash's native shortcuts dialog.

We strongly recommend to our users to switch to EDAPT Shortcuts to get the full EADP Tools experience!

We understand that as our set departs more and more radically from Macromedia/Adobe standard shortcuts, transition can be frustrating at first and requires a few days.
But the benefits to the user would be huge as all EDAPT shortcuts have been assigned with animation/design workflow usability in mind and as you get used to them you will realize how much time and hand movement they will save you.

Switching to EDAPT Shortcuts

You can switch to EDAPT Shortcuts by choosing:
- on Windows Edit > Keyboard Shortcuts… and from the Current Set drop-down menu EDAPT Shortcuts.
- on Mac Flash > Keyboard Shortcuts… and from the Current Set drop-down menu EDAPT Shortcuts.

Important note!
EDAPT shortcuts are designed to work with standard English US keyboard layout.
Using other keyboard layouts (for example English UK) might result in broken shortcuts or unpredictable behavior. 

Customizing EDAPT Shortcuts

If you need to modify the EDAPT set to better suit your needs:
In Animate just use the Edit > Keyboard Shortcuts… dialog.
Flash 8 and CS users, please, refer to this article.

Custom Shortcuts for Multifunction commands

Multifunction commands require multiple shortcuts to be assigned to them.
In Animate this can be done very easily. Detailed information is available here.

Restoring EDAPT Shortcuts

To restore EDAPT Shortcuts in case if some have gone missing or are not working properly, open EDAPT Control Panel and go to the Miscellaneous section. Then click the "Restore EDAPT Shortcuts" checkbox, press Apply and reload the shortcuts from the Shortcuts dialog. Details…

EDAP Tools Shortcuts (shortcuts arranged by menu command)

Many of the standard Adobe shortcuts have been replaced and rearranged to suit animation and design workflow better. Single key shortcuts have been introduced for the most frequently used actions.
