Keyboard Shortcuts

You can use keyboard shortcuts, instead of clicking, to efficiently navigate pages on Everlaw. To bring up a list of keyboard shortcuts while reviewing, hit the '?' (shift + /, on many American computers) on your keyboard. Keyboard shortcuts are page-specific.

Pages on Everlaw that have built-in keyboard shortcuts include the homepage, search, results table, review window, and three features that are part of Storybuilder, Timeline, Depositions, and Drafts.
