Free Keyboard Shortcuts Cheatsheets for InDesign CC, Illustrator CC, and Photoshop CC

Free, Printable Keyboard Shortcut Cheatsheets for Adobe Photoshop CC, Illustrator CC, and InDesign CC

Proficiency and pro­duc­tiv­i­ty in ap­pli­ca­tions with the abil­i­ty and fea­tures of InDesign, Photoshop, and Illustrator re­quire the use of key­board short­cuts or hotkeys. Without them, de­sign­ers spend too much time and en­er­gy search­ing for oft-needed com­mands on menus, sub­menus, pan­els, and pan­el menus. Fortunately, Adobe built in­to its Creative Cloud ap­pli­ca­tions a great many key­board short­cuts to avoid just that type of wast­ed time and ef­fort. Learning those hotkeys and short­cuts, how­ev­er, can be a chore un­to it­self. That’s ex­act­ly why I cre­at­ed these free, print­able cheat­sheets. Take them. Print them. Use them to save your­self and time and frus­tra­tion. Use them to help you be more pro­duc­tive and more creative.

Each multi-page PDF is ful­ly print­able at 300 DPI res­o­lu­tion. Moreover, each is free–a gift from me to you. And you should al­so feel free to regift them–send them to your team­mates, col­leagues, stu­dents, and friends. Of course, I hope you’ll send oth­ers to this page to down­load the cheat­sheets (so every­one gets the lat­est ver­sion), but you’re al­so wel­come to dis­trib­ute the PDFs di­rect­ly (un­al­tered, of course).

Download print­able Creative Cloud key­board short­cut cheat­sheets. Right-click and choose Save Target As or Save Link As.

    Dear friends
    I am very hap­py to read your site which brought me much hap­pi­ness. last time I have print out the Keyboard Shortcuts Cheatsheets for Photoshop which is re­al­ly very use­ful to me as a be­gin­ner. This time I al­so would like to down­load the Keyboard Shortcuts Cheatsheets for Indesign but i could not down­load di­rect­ly as be­fore be­cause they asked me a pass­word but I don’t know what pass­word so could you kind­ly help me to guide. Sorry for my poor English.
    Best wish­es and loves from Thupten,Tibet

    • Hi, Thupten.

      I’m sor­ry you had dif­fi­cul­ty, but I’m not able to repli­cate the prob­lem. Both the Mac and Windows InDesign CC Keyboard Shortcut Cheatsheets down­load fine, with­out a pass­word prompt, for my­self and sev­er­al oth­ers run­ning on many browsers and de­vices. Perhaps you could try down­load­ing from an­oth­er brows­er or clear the cache on your cur­rent brows­er and try again?
