Quickly find where Classic tools and features are in the new Flex UI.
Keyboard Shortcuts: We developed a suite of keyboard shortcuts to help you do your work faster and easier.
Use Preview Mode to follow links: You can no longer follow a link in Edit Mode. Instead, switch to Preview Mode. This will also reveal those 'helper' references to embedded Shared Content. (Hint: click the 'm' key to toggle back and forth.)
Annotations are Hidden: Click the little icon at the top right of the window (it may show a number or a "+" sign) to reveal the annotations interface. We also added a new feature called Authoring Notes!
Unlike the Classic version, right-clicking and double-clicking have no special function. Instead, select an item then look for additional tools or menus to appear.
