Keyboard Shortcuts and Access Keys

OpenProject (since version 3.0) offers useful keyboard shortcuts to enhance your productivity. We use both access keys and regular shortcuts. When using access keys, press the modifier keys and the access key number. For the regular shortcuts just type the listed keys on any OpenProject page.
