QuickBooks: Editing Transactions and Lists Shortcuts

When you are working with a transaction such as an invoice or bill, you can manipulate the transaction itself, and the detail lines, in several ways. If you are working on a list (item list, customer list, etc.) some of the same keys will work. Note that there are occasional transactions where some of these keys won’t apply:
Delete the selected line in a transaction
Insert a blank detail line in a transaction
Create a new transaction or list item
Delete the current transaction or list item. Please note that you cannot reverse this once done, usually
Edit an item in an item list, or in a register
If you are looking at a check in the write checks window, or in the check register, use ctrl-O to copy the check. You can then use ctrl-V to create (paste) a copy of that check if you are in the check register

If you have a transaction or list window open, look at the Edit menu, it will show you the shortcuts that are available for the window you are working with.
