Updated list of shortcuts for Sage X3 version 12

By: | Category: ERP

Everyone loves a quick way to get things done. Periodically, Sage updates the shortcut combos for Sage X3. Introduced in version 12 patch 18 was an updated list of shortcut commands to help you work more efficiently. You can find these listed in the online help (for those with patch 18+) or you can read below for a handy list of the most useful shortcuts and bookmark this page for later use.


Sage X3 Tips

Some of these shortcuts remain the same from prior versions, but some have changed so make sure to read through them thoroughly.

First up are the Ring panel shortcuts:

Next, are the navigation for records. For example, next record or previous record:

Right underneath that we have the tabs for the screens. So, each tab will be a number. This also is automatically picked up to increment numbers when you add custom tabs like EDI. If you added EDI tab after Lines (for example) it would be ESC+5. This can go up to zero (0). Zero (0) comes after 9 which makes no sense until you look at your keyboard. Then it makes a lot of sense.

Then we have some quick navigation:

We also have the online help (no picture) which is just ESC+F1. You get function help when you have no focus (no cursor on a field) and you get field help if you are focused on a field.
