Create new item

Ctrl + Alt + N

Shift focus to next field


Shift focus to previous field

Shift + Tab

Move the cursor to the next field in the work flow during document registration.

Open field / Edit a drop-down field


Save and close window  / Close action menu


Save and close field

Alt Gr +  S


Move to first item line

Ctrl + Arrow down (This moves the highlight down?)

F12 (The F12 key put my computer to sleep, but did nothing in Rambase?)

Close popup or action  menu / Move back in history


Inspect document without links

Mark reference + F10 (what is a mark reference?)

Open the tab

Move focus in the document lines

Arrow up/down. Click an item to highlight it, and use the up or down arrows to navigate. (Any item must be in focus, the key will not work if the focus is elsewhere)

Move focus on tabs

Ctrl + Arrow left/right (They are called Sections in the UI?) They are certainly not tabs. Also it does not work consistently.

Move the cursor to the tool line in header (if already standing in first field in an item)
