What Is It?
The Keyboard Shortcuts enables users to quickly move, rotate, or scroll through visualizations and data between different screens within the application.
Why Is This Important?
The Keyboard Shortcuts library offers flexibility to different user types who rely or prefer using the keyboard over their touchpad or mouse. Offering these options is important in order to tailor the experience to different skill levels or preferences.
