The following keyboard accelerators (shortcuts) are available in xfig.

It is also possible to use accelerators on some of the popup panels. See the description about each popup panel for more information.


Menu Accelerators:
[Menu Accelerators] File menu accelerators Edit menu accelerators View menu accelerators Help menu accelerators

File Menu Accelerators:
[Help Menu Button] (Meta-F)
[File Menu Accelerators]

The underlined letter or number shows the shortcut that will perform the indicated action once the menu is popped up. The shortcuts in parentheses (e.g. Meta-X) show the shortcut available without popping up the menu.

Note that pressing the number 1 while the file menu is up will load the file /tmp/sample.fig in the above example.

The accelerator Shift-Meta-P will print using the previously set parameters (i.e. the print panel isn't popped up, but the figure is printed).
The accelerator Shift-Meta-X will export using the previously set paramters (i.e. the export panel isn't popped up, but the figure is exported).
