In order to make editing apps more efficient, there are a number of different keyboard shortcuts you can use.

App Builder

Widget shortcuts:

These shortcuts apply when you have a widget selected in the Tulip App Builder:

  • Arrow keys to move the selected widgets by a single pixel
  • Shift+Arrow keys to move the selected widgets by 5 pixels
  • Delete to delete the selected widgets
  • Control+A to select all widgets
  • Control+x/c/v to cut / copy / paste the selected widgets
  • Control+shift+f to move the selected widgets to the front
  • Control+shift+b to move the selected widgets to the back
  • Control+f to move the selected widgets forward by one layer
  • Control+b to move the selected widgets back by one layer

Step shortcuts:

These shortcuts apply when you have a step selected in the Tulip App Builder:

  • Enter to add a new step
  • Control+enter to edit the step name
  • Control+delete to delete the step
  • Control+up/down arrow to move the step around

Universal shortcuts:

These shortcuts don’t change based on the selection context:

  • Control+z to undo when the “Undo” popup is open at the top of the screen.

Note: These shortcuts are for a Windows machine. To use them on a Mac, use Command instead of control and you have the added advantage of using emoticons in your text by using Command+Control+Space Bar.

Tulip Player

Form Steps

This shortcut applies when you have opened a Form Step in the App Builder.

  • Tab key to automatically select the next field on the form without touching a mouse or a screen
