When you are working in our Content Editor (pictured below), to Cut, Copy, or Paste, you will need to use the above keyboard shortcut commands, as the buttons in the editor will not work in the browser, and the right-click functionality does not include those functions in this area.
Working With Multiple Browser Tabs
One thing that can make your work go much faster is having multiple browser tabs open to commonly used areas of the system. This allows you to jump from tab to tab without having to leave something you might be in the middle of working on.
You can easily do this on the fly by doing the following:
- Click in the blue Admin Toolbar on the text link (Website, POS, Products, Inventory, Marketing, or Reports) to see the drop-panel of modules in that area (see Products, above). This does NOT take you away from the area you are working in.
- Right-click (or Ctrl-Click on a Mac) the button for the module you want, and in the pop-up menu, choose Open Link in New Tab.
- Your new tab will be at the top of your browser, just to the right of the one you are currently working in (see below).
Opening the main areas of the system this way, and having all of these tabs open so you can easily switch between them can save you a lot of time!
