If you’re a coding ninja, you know that speed and efficiency are keys to beating a tight deadline. There is a lot of coding to be done, a lot of screen switches (if you’re working with multiple monitors), and repetitive processes. So to slice your time in half, we’ve compiled 12 shortcuts for Mac users.
Many of these shortcuts are familiar with those who are used to working with Mac for coding and design projects, but some are actually overlooked by users. Believe it or not, I see people still use the manual way. But knowing shortcuts like these will make a difference in terms of how fast you get your results.
