Stroke shortcuts in InDesign

When drawing a shape in InDesign, you often end up with a stroke you didn’t want. To change this very quickly, your shape must be selected, then you can change the fill and stroke attributes by using the following shortcuts:

  • press the X key to toggle between the Stroke and Fill attributes
  • press Shift-X and the fill color and stroke color will swap places
  • the comma key (,) applies the default color to the fill/stroke
  • the period key (.) applies the default gradient to the fill/ stroke
  • the forward slash key (/) sets the current fill/stroke to None
