FrontPage 2003 Cheat sheet Working with HTML DOCTYPE Declarations in FrontPage Search & Replace Code Snippets in FrontPage 2003 FrontPage Macro Programming Humor Etc

After approximately 20 years of using Frontage (I use it since 1996) I realized that my working habits in FrontPage that I spontaneously acquired during all those years of intensive daily usage are all wrong. That happened accidentally when I went to a conference and forgot my mouse.

I was forced to use keyboard shortcuts for a week and after that I realized how much time and effort I wasted for all those years. It simply amazing stupidity for a computer professional, who came from command line background.

Some very useful and enhancing productivity FrontPage shortcuts became evident to me only after ten or more years of usage ;-). Another problem is that brain capacity to remember keyboard shortcuts is limited and those that you use rarely are often forgotten and mouse and menu are used instead no matter how hard you try.

this problem is highly individual but for a giver program you usually can't remember more then a couple dozens of keystrokes. But you can split shortcuts into hierarchy of "mental pages" and this way you can actually remember much more, three dozens is not problem if they are split into multiple "mental pages" with 5-7 items in each.

That's why it is important to print cheat-sheet and put is over monitor when you are using Frontpage. Creation and maintenance of this cheat-sheet is an important productivity enhancing activity. This cheat sheet should consist of several "mental pages" with no more then a dozen related shortcuts in each.

That's why it is important to print cheat-sheet and put is over monitor when you are using Frontpage. Creation and maintenance of this cheat-sheet is an important productivity enhancing activity.

It is very important distinguish between vital but non-obvious shortcuts and "junk" shortcuts. Among non obvious shortcuts that have potential to enhance your productivity I would mention the following (of course this is highly subjective rating):

Those are mostly unique for FrontPage.

Again, I would like to stress that in order to train yourself to use them printing "cheat-sheets" an putting it over the monitor is necessary for most people. You can use a thin PCB cooking board to attach it above the monitor, or use some other method (if monitor is close the wall the wall can be used). Base for a flag also can be used.

Otherwise you soon forget the shortcut and return to an old way of doing the same staff. Printed cheatsheet serves as your long-term memory and you can gradually polish it. It is important to limit yourself to just one double spaced sheet (say 20 shortcuts). Excessive zeal in using shortcuts in counterproductive. See also Frontpage Tips

Excessive zeal in using shortcuts in counterproductive. Limit yourself to only those few that really matter (less then 20). Usage of cheat-sheet in a mouse pad or over the display is a must.

Many Frontpage keystrokes are also used with other members of Microsoft Office family such as MS Word and Excel, so as such they are easier to remember then unique for FrontPage keystrokes. Here Microsoft has done an excellent job in unifying interfaces between components of the Office (generally Office is a masterpiece of Microsoft software; more so then Windows).

Among those that matter we can mention:

  1. Ctrl-Alt-digit -- put header tag H1,H2, H3 and so on on the selection
  2. F7 -- Check spelling on a Web page.
  3. CTRL+N Create a new Web page.
  4. CTRL+F Find text or HTML on a Web page.
  5. F3 Find the next occurrence of the most recent search.
  6. CTRL+H Replace text or HTML on a Web page.  this also allows access to stored search&replace macros.
  7. CTRL+Z or ALT+BACKSPACE Undo an action. CTRL+Y or SHIFT+ALT+BACKSPACE Redo or repeat an action.
  8. CTRL+B -- Bold; CTRL+I -- Italics
  9. CTRL+L -- Left justified
  10. CTRL+M -- Increase indent; CTRL+SHIFT+M -- Decrease indent
