Keyboard shortcuts

Sketch Engine enables you to use hotkeys in order to accelerate your work. For most of the keyboard shortcuts, you need to press the first letter, release, then the second letter, release. Do not press both letters simultaneously.
For example, if you need to switch to a different corpus, you can just press then c (Select Corpus) and start typing the name of another corpus. Usually, the hotkeys refer to the actions they execute and thus they are easier to remember.

Macros in Sketch Engine

Automate your usual concordance operations with macros. Macros let you save the filters and other actions applied on a concordance. When generating a new concordance, select the macro and the same sequence of actions will be carried out automatically. If you have a minute, this video shows you how.
