Their creator, Mr. Spencer, writes:

For me it’s essential that I get stuff done as quickly as possible, as my time is precious to me. As I use these tools so often, I have found learning the various different keyboard shortcuts as an invaluable method for speeding up my work and processes. To help you learn all these different keyboard shortcuts (some of which aren’t published in the software) I have created one mega cheatsheet which you can save for your future use.

For example, one of Adobe Photoshop’s strengths is that it makes extensive use of keyboard shortcuts; but, there are so many that it’s difficult to remember them all. So now this will make it really easy for you to remember them the next time you are using the software! I’ve discovered that by making a list of the most-commonly-used tasks I do using CC and then discovering how to do them faster through shortcuts, I’ve taken off 30 minutes from my working day.

We hope you enjoy these quick-and-easy references to the most important keyboard shortcuts and quick keys for 14 of the most popular tools in the Creative Cloud:

    These are brilliant, thanks for sharing! Cheat sheets save so much time and really helped me use Adobe Captivate to its full potential by providing lots of shortcuts to the way I was working. I found the following Captivate keyboard shortcut cheat sheet really helped me navigate the software, I have been using it for some time now:

    is there a cheat sheet for Adobe Animate? I have not found one on the internet.

    • Hey Tom, we have listed the downloadable Flash Professional Keyboard Shortcuts Cheat Sheet in the collection given above, but it has not yet been updated for Adobe Animate.

      Not to worry, though – as most of the Animate keyboard shortcuts (the vast majority) still remain the same as they were with Flash Pro.

      In other words, you should still be able to use the Flash Pro cheat sheet above with Animate.

      If nevertheless you want the absolute latest cheat sheet for Animate CC, then check out this Adobe Help page:

      Hope that helps!
