Pega keyboard shortcuts

Any action which generally requires mouse clicks becomes more convenient to do via keyboard shortcuts. These shortcuts are also referred to as hot-keys.

For Pega development we have multiple actions to be performed on a regular basis like some basic navigations to open required rules or basic form actions after opening a rule or for development tools which enable us to debug or further ease our development process.Hence the keyboard shortcuts have been divided into three categories:

1. Basic actions - common navigation operations within the Designer Studio such as opening the Home Page, logging out and collapsing the Explorers panel.
2. Form actions - common operations performed on a rule or data instance such as Save, Check Out and Refresh.
3. Tool actions - launch debugging tools such as Tracer and Clipboard.

Notes:

  • As long as you are not directly interacting with a top level control or gadget when the keyboard shortcut is entered, it will be honored. Examples include using the Search control found in the Designer Studio header and viewing Best Bets in the Application Explorer.
  • In many cases, pressing the Enter key while focused in a grid creates a new row.
  • Shortcuts in the basic and tool category are not supported by form-based rules, because these rules open in a new window.
