Quick Drop Shortcuts from last NOCLUG Meeting

Hi all, I had a request to document my favorite quick drop shortcuts that we demonstrated at the last NOCLUG meeting, and it turns out that it's already very well documented here:

Boost Productivity with Quick Drop (http://zone.ni.com/devzone/cda/tut/p/id/7423)

If you want to quickly populate the controls and indicators of a VI and fix the labels, do the following:

  1. Select the VI
  2. <ctrl + space> then <ctrl + D>
  3. <ctrl + space> then <ctrl + T>

I find <ctrl + space> then <ctrl + T> to be very helpful to clean up the labels of controls and indicators, but it only works at the top level of a block diagram (not inside structures).

Two more wonderful links for quick drop shortcuts with additional shortcuts for right-handed users:
