Use of Keyboard Shortcuts

Users who are not familiar with system keyboard shortcuts would use the mouse to click on the arrow on the right side of the Combo box to open the drop down list and select an item (eg. customer id, vendor id or material code etc.) Using the mouse for this purpose will slow down the work.

So here is the way out, whenever users want to select an item from a drop down list (combo box) just bring the curser to the field and press Control (Ctrl) and then down Navigation Key, this will open the drop down list from where you can select the required item by further pressing the down Navigation Key.

Likewise the following keyboard shortcuts will perform the corresponding functions when the Purchase, Sales, Payment, Receipts and General Ledgers are open…

Ctrl + K – will bring the curser to the Code section to select Code or to scan barcode (Purchase & Sales Registers).
