Use Keyboard Shortcuts

MuPAD® notebooks will be removed in a future release. Use MATLAB® live scripts instead.

MATLAB live scripts support most MuPAD functionality, though there are some differences. For more information, see Convert MuPAD Notebooks to MATLAB Live Scripts.

Shortcut keys for your platform provide quick access to many of the desktop menu items. These shortcut keys are sometimes called accelerators or hot keys. For example, on Microsoft® Windows® platforms, use the Ctrl+X shortcut to cut text. Many menu items include a shortcut. Additional standard platform shortcuts usually work, but each menu item lists only one.

On the Macintosh platform, to make full use of all keyboard shortcuts, you can enable full keyboard access. For this option, select Apple menu>System Preferences, and click Keyboard & Mouse. Click Keyboard Shortcuts and select Turn full keyboard access on or off.

This table lists common MuPAD® shortcuts.
