Shortcuts to Success: Get to the Control Panel in a Flash
SPD-U SHORTCUT OF THE WEEK
Jump to Control Panel
The Control Panel (above) is that long bar at the top of your screen, and it's InDesign's command center. It's contextual, meaning that it changes to let you quickly view or change what you're working on. Select type, and it lets you change character and paragraph attributes. Select an object and it lets you change its position and dimensions. Jump to the Control Panel by typing command+6.
