Keyboard Shortcuts

Keyboard Shortcuts thomlau  2011-09-16
Hi all,

Is there a file or list somewhere with all the keyboard shortcuts for skyline? I'm going through a large batch of peptides and replicates and my hands feel like falling off!

Hi Tom,
Sorry, there is not. I agree that I should write one of these. For the time being, though, I have tried very hard to put everything with a useful keyboard shortcut on the menus, and the short-cuts are listed in those menus. So, explore the menus.

Please let me know, if you feel there is something important that is missing a useful keyboard shortcut.

Hi Tom,
Also, if you would be willing to let me watch you work, I would be happy to set up a WebEx to determine if there is anything I can do to help improve the situation for you, whether that be teaching you shortcuts that exist in Skyline or implementing new shortcuts.

Even if I just teach you shortcuts that will give me ideas on what to document better.

Thanks Brendan,
I found the main ones I need in the menu. I don't think there are any that currently missing and should be included. However, there are some such as "edit note" which would be better served by a single button rather than a "shift+ another keypress" but these are just little things that only affect you during marathon 8 hour skyline sessions!

Thanks again

Hi Tom,
If you could add a complete list to this thread of the ones you find cumbersome but high use, I will make an effort to improve them.

Thanks for your feedback.

Is there still no list of keybindings available?

Indeed this is still something very much needed!
