Shortcuts used in SuperMemo 99

Please note that some shortcuts may not work in versions distributed for non-English markets. This is to make sure that the shortcuts do not interfere with some keyboard functions in national Windows releases. Some shortcuts may also be turned off with Tools : Options : SuperMemo : Trim shortcuts (also due to problems with using some buggy national keyboard drivers).

You can quickly learn SuperMemo keyboard shortcuts with SuperMemo via Keyboard available from SuperMemo Library
