Acorn’s Menu Options



Below is a list of all of Acorn’s menu options.  Many options come with preset keyboard shortcuts shown to their right.   For an abbreviated list of common keyboard shortcuts, click here.   If you would like to change an existing keyboard shortcut, follow the steps outlined here.  


When an option is followed by an arrow (), a drop down menu is available with further options.  When you click on an option that is followed by three dots (i.e. File Info…), a window will pop up with further choices.  Menu items shown in red below are only present when you hold down the option key.
