Are there ATX Shortcuts not Listed?

Recommended Posts

I was hoping to find a shortcut for the following actions but I didn't see an option in the ATX Shortcuts document. If anyone knows, I would sure appreciate it.

  • Next form (to switch to the next form in the left hand display i.e., 1065 to Sch B to Sch K-1
  • Forward (there is a Control + B for back)

Also, I saw that I could change my view preferences to zoom out to 80% on a 27" monitor to view most forms in full screen mode, but I was wondering if there was a full screen option.

 

Thank you in advance!

if you click the help icon in the toolbar (image.png.6f88dff2402442057857b4fbbbea46f1.png) you will be taken to the help contents (I think it is the same thing that shows the release notes). Once this is open you can search for "shortcuts" and you should see all the Keyboard Shortcuts

I did not see anything for Next form or Forward, but I could have missed it.

One secret code I just learned this year is F9 to recalculate.

A next form code would be great. I often use Ctrl+o to bring up a list of open forms to move between forms. It's especially useful to jump to 1040 (or first form) or fixed assets because Ctrl+o followed by up arrow and enter takes you to fixed assets, and Ctrl+o, enter takes you the first form.

Having a mouse with forward/back buttons on the side works for forward and back in ATX.

I use Alt+p to bring up the list of pages in a form. Hitting up arrow takes you to the last page, just like in the Ctrl+o list. I call this the mobius strip feature.

The user manual has most of the shortcuts.

One of the main selling points for me in ATX the ability to move quickly among the hundreds of pages in a tax return.

This is my list of ATX shortcuts on a stiky note on my screen:

1. Install voice recognition app.

2. Press Alt and Ctrl simultaneously.

3. Clearly and distinctly enunciate: "SHAZAM!"

4. All will be revealed.

Thank you everyone.

Now that's SLICK!!!

I love this option too. I have my page left on the wheel set to go back and was hoping the page right could be coded to forward 🙂

I can't arrow up in Ctrl + O but can in Alt + P so that's being added to my bag of tricks too!!!

Yeah, I'll just copy and paste that to word in size 6 font! You're the man!!!

BTW- what is recalculate for? Doesn't the software typically recalculate after you jump out of the box? Or is it for times when there's no other box to jump to without leaving the form entirely?

Judy...can this topic be pinned?

 

I separated out an existing pinned topic on ATX tips and tricks and added a quote from the latest post in there. That pinned topic now appears at the very top of General Chat.
