Go To Page (Apple J in InDesign)


Recommended Posts

From my early days working in the UK in the publishing industry before Macs came along, I've worked through Quark XPress, then onto InDesign, and I've now taken the jump to Affinity. Obviously I know what I want to do, I'm just trying to find how to do it!

I like using keyboard shortcuts, and can't find one to quickly get from page to page. In InDesign, there's Apple J to get from one page to another. Is there a Publisher equivalent?

Bit of a shame that CMD J has already been taken, so I'll have to use something else.

Why not change it? CMD (or CTL in Windows) is not a hard-wired command. Just change the Go to Page shortcut to CMD + J. Then for the Duplicate Selection, which CMD+J is the default, change it to CMD+ Page-up. Then you will have the shortcut you're used to.

Or maybe to something a bit easier to remember like Option+D (Mac) or Alt+D on Windows?

Cmd+PageUp is the default for Previous Page, so that one would also have to be changed.

At least on my Mac, Option+D is available without conflicting with any other shortcut, so that is why I suggested changing it to that.
