QlikView Keyboard Shortcuts

by Jerry DiMaso, on Jun 28, 2013 3:51:09 AM

There are numerous keyboard shortcuts that make developing QlikView Applications even faster and easier. Here are some that I have found to be useful:

  • Ctrl+Shift+S – Shows all objects/tabs in the QVW, regardless of hide/show condition
  • Ctrl+Shift+D – Clear all, same as the clear button but it’s faster if you’re just typing
  • Ctrl+Shift+Q – Opens Document Support Information, which provides detailed information about the QVW and computer you’re using
  • Ctrl+Shift+B – Opens Bookmark Overview
  • Ctrl+Shift+O – Opens Connect to Server dialogue
  • Ctrl+Shift+L / Ctrl+Shift+U – Locks and unlocks whichever listbox is activated
  • Alt+Click – Holding Alt and hovering over any object allows you to move the object, which is particularly useful for tables so you don’t have to grab the caption
  • Alt+Ctrl+Click – Copies an object to another part of the sheet or another tab (NB: Allow Move/Size checkbox must be enabled in Properties > Layout if you want to move to another tab)
  • Ctrl+Alt+E – Opens Expression Overview
  • Ctrl+Alt+V – Opens Variable Overview
  • Ctrl+Alt+D – Opens Document Properties (NB: This is a good way to view and change variables if your application has many variables. The Variable Overview will calculate each Variable before opening, but the Variables tab in the Document Properties will not.)
  • Ctrl+Alt+S – Opens Sheet Properties
  • Ctrl+Q+Q – In the Script Editor, writes code that generates sample data
  • Ctrl+Q - Displays Current Selections
  • Ctrl+K+C / Ctrl+K+U – In the Script or Expression Editor, comments and uncomments the selected block of code
  • Ctrl+G – Activates Grid Mode. In addition to the obvious segmentation of the screen, Grid Mode also allows you to right-click inside one cell of a table and format that cell alone, using the Custom Format Cell option in the context menu. (NB: You may enable the Custom Format Cell option outside of Grid Mode by going to User Settings > Design > Always Show Design Menu Items).
