Key Shortcuts


BWStyler lets you use a few key shortcuts for performing certain tasks. Advanced users prefer to use key shortcuts as they help to achieve some tasks much faster.

Please note: If the input focus is in the preset list you can use the A to Z keys to choose the next preset that starts with that letter. Pressing the N key always selects the "None" item tough. If you additionally hold down the Alt key, you can trigger the key shortcuts mentioned below even if the input focus is on the preset list.
