Keyboard and Mac/Win»

Although we try to always mention both it is possible that in come places references to the Keyboard shortcuts refer to Mac keystrokes instead of giving both Mac and Windows versions.

Like most cross-platform apps, FontLab relates Mac to Win shortcuts as follows:


Shift -> Shift

Cmd -> Ctrl

Opt -> Alt

Ctrl -> no equivalent

So, there is a problem that shortcuts involving the Mac Ctrl have no Windows equivalent, as the (much more common) Mac Cmd already maps to the Windows Ctrl. We try to avoid using the Mac Ctrl shortcut for this reason, but we do have some shortcuts that are Mac-only because of this issue.

Keyboard shortcuts is a list of all the keyboard shortcuts in one place.
