keyboard shortcuts // bonnie christine

hello, loves! one of the things i love most about working in adobe illustrator are the keyboard shortcuts i use. illustrator comes with 100s of keyboard shortcuts installed (maybe 1000s?), but i only use a handful of them for my day to day work. getting to know the program with keyboard shortcuts is a great way to speed up your work and jump from one tool and technique to the next.

to help make learning them a little easier, i’ve illustrated a keyboard shortcut guide for you! these are the keyboard shortcuts that i personally use in my daily illustrator work to design blog posts, illustrations and surface pattern designs. print it out and keep it near your workspace to learn them in no time!

to download // print: click on the image above to download the PDF version. print on heavy card stock (my favorite is epson premium presentation paper)

tips*

- if some of these don’t work for you, be sure to set illustrator’s keyboard shortcuts back to ‘default’ (edit >> keyboard shortcuts >> set >> illustrator defaults).

- if mac’s spotlight comes up when you try to zoom out using opt+cmd+spacebar, deselect spotlight finder in your mac’s keyboard shortcut settings (system preferences >> keyboard >> shortcuts >> spotlight >> deselect ‘show spotlight window’)

adobe illustrator keyboard shortcuts

i use shortcuts while working in adobe illustrator constantly, and find that it’s an incredible time saver! it makes things easier, quicker and more streamlined. however, it can be really hard to learn shortcuts for any new program (just put me working in photoshop and i’m lost!). that’s why i really like these keyboard shortcut guides. you can use them to refer to, or set them as your desktop background to keep them handy at all times.
