We have the Page up and Page down key commands that flips the pages, but we also need a keyboard shortcut to go to the first and last pages of a document.”

This macro allows you to quickly go to the first or last page of a multi-page CorelDRAW document.

I assigned the Home key to go to page 1, and the End key to go to the last page in the document.

    What am I missing?

    In my multipage docs there are buttons in the lower left that move to the first and last pages.

    I love macros. But do we need a macro to jump to the first or last page?

    Hi Dick

    Some users like myself prefer shortcut keys. Esp. if they can standardize some similar functions across programs. Fo ex, this macro allows the same operation as MS Word, if a user is comfortable with that.

    Another example: I Weld a lot in Draw… so by assigning W to weld, I don’t have to hunt for the icon on the property bar all the time.

    Therefore: I can play Draw like a piano, by using both hands as much as possible.
