Arduino IDE Keyboard Shortcuts


(Pablo E. Cortés) #1

Where can I find a list of the Arduino IDE keyboard shortcuts? I’ve tried looking for them on Google and the program itself, but I haven’t been able to find them. Can someone a pal out?

Shortcuts are listed on the menu options on the menu bar:

Non-exhaustive list:

Verify/Compile = Ctrl + R
Upload = Ctrl + U
Upload Using Programmer = Ctrl + Shift + U
Export Compiled Binary = Ctrl + Alt + S
Show Sketch Folder = Ctrl + K
Find = Ctrl + F
Find Next = Ctrl + G
Find Previous = Ctrl + Shift + G
Select All = Ctrl + A
Cut = Ctrl + X
Copy = Ctrl + C
Paste = Ctrl + V
Go To Line = Ctrl + L
Comment/Uncomment = Ctrl + /
New = Ctrl + N
Open = Ctrl + O
Save = Ctrl + S
Save As = Ctrl + Shift + S
Close = Ctrl + W
Print = Ctrl + P
Preferences = Ctrl + Comma

As a bonus, the preferences panel doesn’t actually cover all settings.
All the settings are stored in an ini-like file called preferences.txt in \AppData\Local\Arduino15.

You can make the Arduino IDE use tabs by setting editor.tabs.expad=false and editor.tabs.size=4.
There’s lots of other settings too, like default window size and verbose build.
