  • Multi-Select - Press the Control key while selecting multiple objects. All objects will be in the selection.

  • Order-Select - Press the Alt key while selecting an object. If there is more than one selectable object at this place, the next Alt-click gets the next object selected.

  • Multi-Edit Grid Columns - Press the Alt Key down while selecting multiple cells in a grid column. Then right-click the selection and choose "Fill down" to copy the value of the first selected cell to all other selected cells.

  • Copy Paste - CTRL + C copies the selection to an internal buffer.

  • CTRL + V pastes the content of the buffer. You must be in the same context, e.g., a selection of Activities copied in a time-distance cell can only be pasted into another time-distance cell.

  • Incremental Search - CTRL + I enables you to perform an incremental search for text in a list, such as the Activity List, Link List, or Resource List. Enter a specific text ‘string’ by typing the characters. Find the next matching string in the list (including in following columns) by pressing the down arrow key.
