UTS Keystrokes

The following table lists the keys that you can press to send the corresponding action when interacting with the host in a UTS session in Presentation Designer.

When you see two keys connected by a plus sign (+), press and hold down the first key, and then press the second key. For all keystrokes that involve the numeric keypad, NumLock must be off. All letter keys are lowercase letters.

Keystroke Action Description
BACKSPACE BackSpace Moves the cursor one column to the left in the same row, deleting any unprotected characters.

CTRL+END ClearToEndOfField Deletes all unprotected characters in an FCC field from the cursor to the end of the FCC field.

If emphasis is protected, the emphasis characteristic isn't removed.

CTRL+ + on the numeric keypad ClosePrint Sends any data in the print queue to the printer immediately.

If the last position is the trail byte of a DBCS character, the cursor moves to the lead byte.

If the last position is protected, the cursor moves to the next unprotected character.

CTRL+Right Arrow CursorToEndOfPage Moves the cursor to the last position on the current page.

CTRL+DELETE DeleteFromPage Deletes the character that the cursor is on and shifts all the remaining characters one position to the left.

If the cursor is in an FCC field, the characters in that field are shifted to the left, but the characters beyond the current field aren't shifted. A space is inserted in the last position of the page or field.
