I noticed in several posts that there are some handy keyboard shortcuts available. I figured I would see if I could start a thread to group them all into one thread (cut and paste previous, then add yours).

On the SDS100, I saw that :

F + Long Key Press (9) = Black/White mode

Please add more to this thread to help us newbies get the best information for the scanner in an easy to use reference.

Thanks!

Copy and paste. I couldn't cut (remove) from your post so I copied (replicated) it.

The most widely misused action.:p

Sorry if I was not clear what I was hoping for

I apologize if I was not clear on the keyboard shortcut post I posted...

I was hoping that we can start a running list of many keyboard shortcuts (i.e. the black and white display switch) for SDS 100 owners/future owners, in order to group them into one thread.

Please post any you know about to add to the list.
