Keyboard Shortcuts


Some institutions choose to hide the launch button thereby requiring their users to use keyboard shortcuts to launch the tools. If this is the case at your institution, please teach your users how to use these keyboard shortcuts.

To unhide the Design Tools launch button using keyboard shortcuts, first make sure that you are editing the page.  Then, you may use either:

  1. Alt-Shift-D (PC) / Option-Shift-D (Mac), or
  2. Ctrl-1

The first option is the original keyboard shortcut.  However, due to a Firefox update, we added the second option to work as well.

If neither of these options are working for you, it's possible that your access to Design Tools has been limited by your institution, or that there is a problem with the Design Tools configuration in your institution's JavaScript file.  You can contact for help.
