Keyboard Shortcuts

From RawPedia
Jump to: navigation, search
For reference, this is the standard United States-NoAltGr QWERTY keyboard layout.

Note that some shortcuts, specifically ones that involve one or more modifier keys such as ^ Ctrl+ Shift, are known to not work on some non-QWERTY keyboard layouts. This is not a fault of RawTherapee.
