Next in line for customization are the InDesign Shortcuts. Now, if I go over here, hover the mouse over for any of these items here you can see that there's a letter at the end: A for Direct Select Tool, V and Escape for the Selection Tool, and just so that you know the difference here, V is if you're moving from one of the other tools, one of these tools down here, and you want to get the Selection Tool you hit V, go back up, this one, hit V, go back up. However, if you're in Text Tool Mode here, type in a Y here and you hit V you'll just simply type in the letter V there, so if you hit Escape you come up and get back to the Selection Tool. That's why it's got two. So you can change these or add options to ones you don't have. For example, here the Ellipse Frame Tool doesn't have one, so let's go through and add it. We'll go to our Edit Menu, again this is the same on the PC and the Mac, we'll go to Keyboard Shortcuts and we'll look for our Tools Panel. Here you can see all the menus again. We can go through and add or delete shortcuts that we have here and down here we can see we have the Tools. So I've got to look for this Ellipse Frame Tool, so if I scroll down here, they're in alphabetical order, and there's the Ellipse Frame Tool. You can see no shortcut applies here so I can create one. Now if I type in a letter here like C you can see it's currently assigned to the Scissors Tool. Now I could hit Assign here and it said it cannot modify this. Do you want a new set? So I'll say Yes. We'll call it VTC like that, click on OK, and there it defines it to this. So that means that the Scissors Tool, if we go down here, the Scissors doesn't have a shortcut applied to it now, so it overrides the existing one. But if I want to apply one here I can go ahead and hit a letter till I find one that hasn't had anything applied to it. Let's say, the letter Q like that, click on OK, and now when I come and hover over our Scissors Tool here you can see we've got the letter Q there and the Ellipse Frame Tool is now the letter C. Let's take a look at adding another one here. So this is one that I use a lot here. I'll start typing here and, you know, let's just type Moby Dick. I say, oh, no. Look at that. It's all uppercase cause I've got the Cap Lock on, so I can select this. I can go to my Type Menu and here again is a case that I was talking about in the last movie, I know it's here but I've forgotten exactly where it is. There it is, Change Case, and go to Title Case like that. But because I do this so much I would like a shortcut key for this, so let me undo that like that and we can go to our Edit Menu, Keyboard Shortcuts, and down here we can choose our Type Menu, and let's go, scroll down, Change Case, Change Case to Title Case. We need a choice here so we'll try and find something new and this time I'll use a Modifying Key and I'll just go Cmd-C. It's currently assigned to Copy so we wouldn't want that one. But we can hit Cmd-Q, like that. It's not assigned to anything so we can assign it. It's still part of this set so we'll just save it like that. We're still saving the VTC set. Click on OK. Now every time I type an uppercase I can just select it, hit Cmd-Q like that, and there I've changed the case for it. Let me come back in, go to the Keyboard Shortcuts and we'll just take a quick look up here. Here's the set that we created. You want to go back to the default just select it like that, click on OK, and notice we've got two others that are built in here: Shortcuts for Pagemaker 7. So if you've been using Pagemaker and you're going to InDesign, you're happy with the shortcut keys, you're used to them, you can choose these and any things that were in Pagemaker will have the old Pagemaker shortcuts. Obviously features in InDesign that were in Pagemaker won't have a shortcut and you're going to have to make them. Same with Quark Version 4. Quark is now on Version 8, but 4 was definitely the most popular version so if you're switching over I'm sure you'll be delighted because InDesign's a much better program. You can still go back and use the Quark shortcuts but I recommend getting used to the InDesign ones. It's what they are and you're going to continue using this program for a long time. You can use these but, again, you can come down, choose VTC like this, and that way I have those couple that I just created. Click on OK and that way I can access these items quickly by the new shortcut keys and again change the case quickly, one that I need to use a lot.
