Most keyboard shortcuts require the user to press a single key or a sequence of keys one after the other. Other keyboard shortcuts require pressing and holding several keys simultaneously. Keyboard shortcuts may depend on the keyboard layout. However, the common keyboard shortcuts still difficult to remember, inconvenient to use, easy to press wrong. ATOM Board form MoYu Group can save you a lot of time, easier to use.
