Hi, what's the shortcut for a Right Indent Tab within a table on mac. Just like alt+tab for a normal tab within a table but then a right indent tab.

 

this would make my life easier 🙂

You can create your own keyboard shortcut in Edit > Keyboard Shortcuts.

 

You need to find the category the shortcut is in. Use the Show Set button on the right side of the Keyboard Shortcuts dialog box. This will open up all your shortcuts in a text editor (which depends on OS). Right Indent Tab is in the Type menu. By default, Shift-Tab is the shortcut for text but it doesn't work in a table. But you can select Table to be the Context (see below):

In the context of Tables, I set it to be Ctrl-\ (whicdh works on a Mac).

 

Below you can see that it works in the table (see hidden character for Right Indent Tab after the word "text"):

One more detail I forgot, to create a custom keyboard shortcut, you need to create a New Set. Use the New Set button in the Keyboard Shortcuts dialog box.
