Keyboard Equivalent

A command entered using a physical keyboard that produces the same action as tapping a specific button or choosing an item from a picker. For example, typing a key combination consisting of the “Command” key and the “P” key produces the equivalent of selecting the “Print” action in most applications.

Holding down the “Command” key on a keyboard connected to a Newton OS 2.1 device displays a slip listing all of the keyboard equivalents available for the current application.
