Keyboard shortcut for highlighting text

Post by adigup305@gmail.com » Wed Sep 15, 2021 7:36 am

Hi,
I am using PDF Xchange-Editor and would like to know how to setup a keyboard shortcut key for highlighting the text. Currently it is possible only using a mouse but would be great and faster if I can do it via keyboard key.

First of all, there are many keyboard shortcuts established in the default installation. See https://help.tracker-software.com/pdfxe9/ where you will see that the default keyboard shortcut is ctrl+alt+H for Highlight Form Fields. However, you can customize these shortcuts with Customize Toolbars->Commands->Properties->Shortcut Keys. For instance, I have customized Highlight Text to just the simple "H."
