While we’re talking about tips, here’s another one I use frequently to save time.
When I can’t remember which menu (and sometimes submenu) a particular command is hidden in, or if I just want to save a few seconds, I type it in. Hit Command+Shift+/ and up pops the app’s Help menu. Begin typing the menu item, and it shows you right where to find the command. Use the arrow key to move down to the option you want and hit Return. Bam – you just found that hidden menu item and executed it in about 2 seconds.
