Use Keyboard Shortcuts

Using shortcut keys for your platform, you can access many of the desktop menu items. These shortcut keys are sometimes called accelerators or hot keys. For example, use the Ctrl+X shortcut to perform a cut on Microsoft® Windows® platforms. Many of the menu items show the shortcuts. Additional standard shortcuts for your platform usually work, but only one is listed with each menu item.

On the Macintosh platform, to make full use of all keyboard shortcuts, you might need to enable full keyboard access. To access this option, select Apple menu>System Preferences, and click Keyboard & Mouse. Click Keyboard Shortcuts, and select Turn full keyboard access on or off.

In addition to platform based shortcuts, commonly used MuPAD® shortcuts are listed in the table below.

For a pair of mismatched delimiters, you can correct the closing delimiter. To replace the closing delimiter with the one that matches the opening delimiter, place the cursor to the right of the closing delimiter and press the Tab key.
