Customizable Shortcut Keys

PPT Productivity's PowerPoint add-in lets you set up customizable shortcut keys (aka hotkeys or PowerPoint keyboard short cuts) for 800+ standard PowerPoint commands AND for PPT Productivity's 100+ commands.

Shortcut keys in PowerPoint are searchable using PPT Productivity's Edit Custom Shortcut Keys popup. You can generate and print a PDF list of your shortcuts to help learn and memorize your keyboard shortcuts. The Edit Custom Shortcut Keys popup also lets you easily reset or update your shortcut keys.

Reassign shortcut keys

PowerPoint assigns default shortcut keys to only ~200 of its 800+ commands, and these shortcuts are not readily customizable in standard PowerPoint. But with PPT Productivity, you can override shortcut keys to any PowerPoint command!

To reassign shortcut keys:

  1. Shift+click the PowerPoint or PPT Productivity menu item
  2. Press the new Shortcut key combination
  3. Click Assign then Close
  4. Now press your new shortcut keys and the command will automatically run for you
Reassigning shortcut keys can help to make commands easier to remember. You can reassign a shortcut to make it consistent with the keyboard shortcut you use for similar features in another program. Or reassign shortcuts to make them more memorable given the name for the feature in your language.
