Keyboard shortcuts for Visio Online

The keyboard shortcuts described in this Help topic refer to the U.S. keyboard layout. Keys on other layouts might not correspond exactly to the keys on a U.S. keyboard.

Visio Online follows the standard navigation cycle when moving around the page. The general navigation direction is left-to-right (except for right-to-left languages) and top to bottom. The navigation order also follows the z-order of shapes (also called layers), from lowest to highest.
