Keyboard shortcuts are one of the features that make TOAD so powerful and easy to use. TOAD comes with a host of predefined shortcuts. These shortcuts save keystrokes and mouse actions and perform a variety of tasks such as issuing a describe on the current highlighted object, or find (find next, find previous, and so on). The shortcuts differ slightly between the SQL Editor and the PL/SQL Editor (covered in Chapter 4). This section focuses on the shortcuts for the SQL Editor only.
Table 3.1 shows all the shortcuts in keystroke order and Table 3.2 shows all the shortcuts in description order. The third column refers you to the figure in this chapter where the shortcut is illustrated.
