19 - Keystrokes used in WinImages F/x

F/x supports a number of keystrokes to aid the user. F/x also follows all Windows keystroke conventions for selecting and sending dialog controls.

Keystrokes are detected only when a View window is active. Dialogs consume all keystrokes, and so none of these commands work when a dialog is active.

Keystrokes here are generally in alphabetic order. Be sure to look through them all, as functions that are related are not grouped on this page.
