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:
 
Ctrl-Del
Delete the selected line in a transaction
Ctrl-Ins
Insert a blank detail line in a transaction
Ctrl-N
Create a new transaction or list item
Ctrl-D
Delete the current transaction or list item. Please note that you cannot reverse this once done, usually
Ctrl-E
Edit an item in an item list, or in a register
Ctrl-O
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.
