Shortcuts to Success: Go to a Specific Page

Shortcuts to Success: Go to a Specific Page

Sure, there are huge lists of InDesign keyboard shortcuts out there, but are you going to sit down and memorize them all? We're here to help you learn some handy new ones, one by one, making it easier to add them to your mental list. Each week, we'll highlight a different shortcut to help you work faster, better and smarter.
Go to Page
command + J

Ever want to get to a certain page quick? You can get there without your fingers ever leaving the keyboard. Type command + J (think J for jump) and enter the page number in the Page field of the dialogue box that pops up. 

HOT TIP: If your file doesn't start on page 1, you can use absolute page numbers to go to a page without using its specific number (i.e. first page, second page, etc.). Say your first page number is 66. Instead of typing 66, you can just add a plus in front of its absolute number in the document: +1 for first, +2 for second, etc. So, after typing command + J, you would enter 66 or +1, and get the same result.
