    Default Hotkey to turn on/off Guides?

    Hello

    1. Where can I see and search through my Xara Designer Pro X hotkeys?

    2. Does anyone happen to know if there is a hotkey for toggling on/off the visibility of the "Guides"?
    (i.e. The red dotted lines that appear in the Guides Layer)

    With thanks

    Yes, however it is not searchable.

    But the Help file is. Under the Index tab, type 'shortcuts' in the search window, select the 'Summary ...' option, place your cursor in the list that appears to the right, and type Ctrl + F. Now a new window opens with which you can search the list.

    as boy says..

    but... searchable only brings up what you type in, which may not be how xara defines what you are looking for

    it is better to use a lookup list in my opioion and learn

    What I did.
    Opened Customise key shortcuts > Save: keyset.ini.
    That is searchable.

    I took it further.
    I set up a speadsheet and added everthing I could fine for v16.
    The "searchable" result is here: http://acorn.xara.hosting.
    The list shrinks down quickly so Search: guides returns 18 entries, which gets to NUM 1 very easily.
    Click on a column to order.
    Elsewhere I even published the XAR.
