Keyboard Shortcuts to select pens
I use color coding so I have to switch back and forth between various pens. Would be really nice to have keyboard shortcuts (i.e. 1 for first pen, 2 for 2nd pen etc) so I can jump between them without manually selecting the pen each time.

This is such a basic feature... please make this possible!

We really need this feature please!!!!
Microsoft adds shortcut keys for everything in existence. How is the one thing I actually need shortcuts for non-existent? Anyone who uses a drawing tablet needs this.

Yes, we absolutely need more keyboard shortcuts, and better yet, make them customizeable. This would also help with some of the issues some of us have when using drawing tablets (panning especially).
This is a MUST have option!

You should buy miro.com and integrate with Whiteboard.
Yes, please. This is excellent software, but it really need more keyboard shortcuts.
Please give us more functionality by providing an option for us to set our own keyboard shortcuts to change the pen, select the ruler, cycle through the toolbar options, etc.
yea I miss shortcuts too, that's why I am here.
basic zoom in/out, zoom on lasso and item selection would be nice too
Totally agree. It is a MUST-Have. I use a Graphics Tablet with keys on the side, thus a switch of colors/pens would be essential.
Being able to use keyboard shortcuts would greatly improve my workflow using my Wacom tablet.

i need to use tables and may be graph papers to solve and show equations of lines?
how can we do it with present features or hoe can new features brought in?
Great app. Love it. Keyboard shortcuts is a must have feature to be more effective and productive with the app.
it is a MUST requirement .. so we can assign functionality to our pen/tablet
A systemwide universal keyboard shortcut to be able to capture any screen to then be able to write on it would be very useful.
If I have a PDF of a lesson plan, formula sheet, or any other lesson plan, instantly being able to “write on it” would be very useful.
The lack of standard and advanced keyboard shortcuts and hotkey for core function makes Whiteboard less favorable from other tools. I do appreciate the lightweight nature, that's a good thing, but a few additional functions could be very beneficial.
1. Insert of basic shapes (similar to visio basic shapes)
2. Selection tools w/hotkeys so that I can pen barrel click select (magic, lasso, and objects) without having to change the pen mode
3. Better color diversity and line weight/density - pref in a selector UI popup w/hotkey option for quick access from pen on canvas vs toolbar
Just my .02 Pesos - Thx
Keyboard shortcuts are so fundamental towards increased productivity. Please provide the shortcuts. Also helps mapping to buttons on the passive pens.
Note that when you implement shortcuts to color pens, provide a cyclic shortcut also. That means, pressing the same shortcut, should cycle through pen selection.

I agree, Keyboard Shortcuts should be a basic function. You have a programmable key in tablet and does not have shotcuts in Whiteboard.
