TPE Keyboard Shortcuts

[Unless specifically noted, the content in this topic applies to BizTalk Server 2013 and 2013 R2.]

In the Tracking Profile Editor (TPE), you can use keyboard shortcuts to perform the same navigation and edit functions that you do by using a mouse. You can use these shortcuts to perform all the functions used in TPE. This section describes the keyboard shortcuts and provides some tips about using your keyboard to navigate in TPE.

TPE Tabs

When you first decide to create a new profile or open an existing one from within the TPE, the tab focus is initially on the right pane in the Event Source View.

When you tab out of the Activity View, the tab focus goes to the right pane, the Event Source View. When you are in the Event Source View, the UP ARROW and DOWN ARROW keys can be used to navigate the frame’s contents and highlight specific Orchestration shapes or schema items.
