When editing online web forms or online PDF forms on PlatoForms, we’ve incorporated convenient keyboard shortcuts and quick actions to save you from unnecessary clicking and scrolling. Enjoy seamless form editing at your fingertips.

  • Keyboard shortcuts: They’re preset in your computer system, such as “Copy” and “Paste,” “Undo” and “Redo,” and “Select All.”

  • Quick actions: These are special shortcuts similar to those found in popular drag-and-drop editors. For example, holding down the Shift key while dragging to maintain alignment.
