Quizzler winning answer: How many ways can you “hide” InDesign, from the keyboard?
Pat, a Mac user, says …
- You mentioned the first way – Quit.
- Option-click on the desktop will hide InDesign and you leave the program but not quit it.
- Force Quit – Option+Command+esc
- Command+H – will hide InDesign. Which surprised me the first time it happened because Command+H used to Hide Frame Edges.
- Menu Bar> InDesign> Hide InDesign (does that one count because it’s basically the same as #4)
- Use the dock to hide InDesign
- Use the dock to quit InDesign (does that one count because it’s basically the same as #6)
- Command+Tab highlight InDesign Icon in application switcher and Command+Q
- Command+Tab highlight InDesign icon in application swticher and then Command+H
