Keyboard shortcuts are always useful if you want to work fast. Instead of wasting time navigating menus and looking for items and buttons, hit a keyboard combination and you are done. If you are a designer, keyboard shortcuts are an absolute necessity. But memorizing shortcuts is not easy because every program has it’s own set of shortcuts and you probably use more than a couple of products for your work.
If you primarily use Adobe products, the Adobe Shortcut App can help you quickly locate shortcuts associated with 12 programs of the Adobe Creative Suite CS4 - Illustrator, Photoshop, In Design, Flash, Dreamweaver, Soundbooth, Fireworks, Contribute, After Effects, Premiere Pro, Encore and Acrobat.
Simply click on the product’s icon and you’ll see a full listing of shortcuts for that particular program. You can also save shortcuts as favorites, and it’s ‘search as you type’ functionality lets you easily find shortcuts for almost any tool or action.
Adobe Shortcut App also gives you a link to a downloadable cheatsheet in the PDF format which you can print it out. Adobe Shortcut App is an Adobe AIR based application.
