Toad for DB2 7.0 - Installation Guide

Editor Shortcut Keys

You can assign individual shortcut keys in Keyboard options. See Keyboard Options for more information. You can also customize Toad to use the shortcut keys of existing applications such as Toad for Oracle, SQL Navigator, or Query Analyzer in the Configuration Wizard (Tools | Configuration Wizard).

Caution! If you have some global access keys assigned, make sure that Toad shortcut keys do not coincide with them. When using such duplicating shortcut keys in Toad, the third party application commands, assigned globally, will be performed instead of ones assigned by Toad.

Tip: You can also use Auto-replace to specify words which can be used as shortcuts for entering phrases or statements. See Use Auto-Replace in the Editor for more information.

The following table describes the default shortcut keys in Toad.
