Using keyboard shortcuts in CorelDRAW® X3

You can use keyboard shortcuts (also known as hotkeys) to quickly activate many menu commands and tools in CorelDRAW® X3. The keyboard shortcut for a menu command is displayed to the right of the menu item; the keyboard shortcut for a tool is displayed in a ToolTip when you hover over the tool.



This example shows the keyboard shortcut (Ctrl+N) for starting a new project.



This example shows the keyboard shortcut (F10) for activating the Shape tool.
