Give a person some space food, and they'll eat for a day; teach a person to rehydrate their own space food, and they're set for the whole mission. Or something like that. Keyboard shortcuts fall into this basket. We could give you a list here, but then you'd need to keep referring to this page. The best way to go is to show you how to find the list of keyboard shortcuts within Confluence.

Your recruits also need to work fast, so you'll need to pass this wisdom on to them.

Find the keyboard shortcuts

To open the list of keyboard shortcuts in Confluence, do any of the following:

  • Choose the help icon  at top right of the screen, then choose Keyboard Shortcuts
  • When viewing a page, press Shift+?
  • While editing a page, choose the question mark icon in the editor toolbar

What you'll see is a dialog listing the available keyboard shortcuts, for your operating system, in Confluence.

The keyboard shortcuts are broken up into 3 categories:

  • General – Global, page and blog post shortcuts.
  • Editor – Text editing and formatting shortcuts.
  • Editor Autoformatting – Wiki markup and autoformatting shortcuts.
tip/resting Created with Sketch.

You can turn the 'General' keyboard shortcuts off when you visit the General tab in the keyboard shortcuts dialog.

Take some time to open the dialog and take a look at the shortcuts, and maybe find some you'll use a lot. Then, start practising!
