Keyboard shortcuts

With keyboard shortcuts you can edit and navigate in the Core Reviewer Interface. Using keyboard shortcuts, you can change viewer modes, populate choices, save edits, cancel edits, and move between and within documents. Keyboard shortcuts are enabled by default. To disable shortcuts, click .

Note: Keyboard shortcuts were updated in Relativity 9.0 in accordance with cross-browser compatibility. Beginning in Relativity 9.0, you can't overwrite browser shortcuts. Additionally, some shortcuts that worked in the ActiveX viewer supported before Relativity 9.0 may require remapping, as they won't work in the newly supported browsers.

Users with permissions to edit fields and choices can create additional shortcuts using the Keyboard Shortcuts property on the field or choice.

You can modify the key combinations for system keyboard shortcuts if you have security permission for the Admin Operation called Modify System Keyboard Shortcuts. For more information about this permission see workspace security.

Keyboard shortcuts legend

By default, standard user actions use system keyboard shortcuts. Keyboard shortcuts are listed in the shortcut legend along with those used by the browser. The shortcut legend is accessible via the Keyboard shotcut icon icon in the viewer. Within the legend, you can sort, filter, Export to Excel, and print. You can print by right-clicking and choosing the browser's print option.

Keyboard Shortcut icon in the Viewer

The Keyboard Shortcuts Legend includes the following sortable columns:

  • Keyboard Shortcut - the key combination used to execute the shortcut during document review.
  • Action - the action that results from using the keyboard shortcut.
  • Viewer Mode - the viewer mode for which each shortcut is available. You can use most of the system category shortcuts in all viewer modes.
  • Category - the shortcut type. Below, the legend displays only those shortcuts designated by the System and the browser. This column also lists all field and choice shortcuts that your system admin configured via field and choice properties.

Special considerations for keyboard shortcuts

Keep in mind the following when working with Relativity’s keyboard shortcuts feature:

  • Keyboard shortcuts are active when:
    • Keyboard shortcuts are enabled.
    • Focus is in the Core Reviewer Interface.
    • The viewer is either docked or undocked while the browser only has one tab open.
    • If the shortcut overlaps with a Windows shortcut, both shortcuts are triggered. For example, if a program installed on a user’s computer uses the Ctrl + Alt + R shortcut, clicking Ctrl + Alt + R triggers that action regardless of whether a user is in any of Relativity's supported browsers.
  • Keyboard shortcuts aren't triggered when:
    • Keyboard shortcuts are disabled.
    • Focus is not in the Core Reviewer Interface.
    • The viewer is undocked or in standalone mode, and the browser has more than one tab open.
    • Viewing a document in native mode.
  • When the numbers 0-9 are used as shortcuts, they only fire when you press these digits in the main section of the keyboard. The shortcut doesn't fire if you press those digits found in the keypad.
  • Keyboard shortcuts only execute in the Core Reviewer Interface.
  • Keyboard shortcuts only execute in the Viewer Modes listed in the legend.
  • If the document viewer is undocked, shortcuts that move the cursor focus to a text box only execute if the browser has a single tab open.

Special considerations for Mac users

  • The Command key should be used in the place of the Ctrl key for keyboard shortcuts on Mac.

  • The Option key should be used in the place of the Alt key for keyboard shortcuts on Mac.

  • To page up while using Mac, use fn + Up Arrow and to page down, use fn + Down Arrow.

  • To advance to the next document using Mac, use fn + Option + Down Arrow and to return to the previous document, use fn + Option + Up Arrow will return to the previous document.
