The 7 Best Silhouette Studio Keyboard Shortcuts (And Where to Find the Full List)

Did you know there's a huge set of Silhouette Studio keyboard shortcuts?  I was so stinkin' excited when I discovered this and since then I have come to develop a few favorites.

First I'm going to tell you my seven favorite Silhouette Studio keyboard shortcuts, then I'm going to tell you where you can find the full list for both Mac and PC so you can check out all you're missing...
...and you'll see why some "shortcuts" I don't use at all. I mean who can remember Control +  SHIFT + tap 'C' two times while standing on your head and hitting the 'X' key with the little toe on your left foot?  Okay, okay so it's not that bad, but some of them are just too much for me!

Alright so here are my favorite keyboard shortcuts for Silhouette Studio:

"m" = turns registration marks on and off

"g" = show grid or turn off grid if it's on

"t" = starts a text box

Command + n = Opens blank new work area (MAC)
   Control + n (PC)
Command + g = Group selected shapes (MAC)
      Control + g (PC)

Control + z = Undo (MAC)
  Control + z (PC)

Command + any arrow key = replicate shape directly next to, but not overlapping, original in the direction of the arrow (MAC)
  Control + arrow key (PC)
Now if you don't believe me that these are the best of the best and you want to check out the full list yourself - or perhaps you have a drawing tool or function you use a lot - you can find the full list of Silhouette Studio shortcuts by going to the Help menu in Studio.

Click on User Manual and type in the number for the very last page.

For me - the last page is page 46, but I believe depending on the version of Studio you have the exact page number could be different - but it is the last page!
