Most of the Shortcut Keys in Maptool can be found in the menus; some however are not listed. These "stealth" keys are marked in italic.

Here is a comprehensive list of all known keystrokes. Most keystrokes require that the map window have the keyboard focus.

Note that Meta means Ctrl on Windows and Linux, and Cmd on OSX. Also note that most of these can be changed in the translation files, so these settings are primarily for the English locale.
