Sonic Pi Keyboard Shortcuts by

V 1.0 A Keyboard shortcut cheatsheet based off https://sonic-pi.net/tutorial.html#section-B-2

Conven­tions

In this sheet, we use these conventions
Meta is either Alt on Wind­ows­/Li­nux or Cmd on Mac.
A Strike­through has been made on commands that were tested on Windows 10 and found to not operate as per the original docume­ntation
Examples of how to use this document:
C-a
hold the Control key then press the A key
M-r
hold the Meta key and then press the R key
S-M-z
hold the Shift key, then press Meta key, then the z key
C-M-f
hold the Control key, then press Meta key, then the f key
Part of the notion of consis­tency is the naming of shortcuts. In Sonic Pi we use the names Control and Meta to refer to the two main combin­ation keys. On all platforms Control is the same. However, on Linux and Windows, Meta is actually the Alt key while on Mac Meta is the Command key. For consis­tency we’ll use the term Meta - just remember to map that to the approp­riate key on your operating system.
