New in Axure RP 9: Single-Key Shortcuts

One of our major goals during the version 9 development cycle was to make Axure RP faster. Our pursuit of this goal led us to a number of significant performance improvements and UI optimizations, and it also gave us single-key shortcuts.

Use any of the available single-key shortcuts and click-drag on the canvas to produce a widget of the corresponding type.

New in Axure RP 9: Single-Key Shortcuts

Here are the single-key shortcuts we’ve implemented so far:

R – rectangle mode
O – oval / ellipse / circle mode
T – text mode (drag to dynamically fill area with example text)
P – pen drawing mode
L – line mode

Note: For more widget options, click the new Insert menu in the top toolbar.
