Default IDCS: Incremental Resizing Keystrokes...

I did some experimenting on incrementally resizing stuff in IDCS last night and thought I'd put it in one post...

Note: the following are for the pc--anyone on a mac wanna play?

IDCS: Keystrokes for Incremental Resizing:

1. Font size in a Text Frame: Click on text with either the Selection (V) or Direct Selection (A) tool:

ctrl+shift+< (decrease the font size)
ctrl+shift+> (increase the font size)

2. Text Frame size: Click on text with the Selection (V), Direct Selection (A) or Type (T) tool:

ctrl+alt+, (comma - decrease frame size)
ctrl+alt+. (period - increase frame size)

3. Placed Image and Frame size: Click on image with the Selection (V) tool:

ctrl+alt+, (comma - decrease image and frame size)
ctrl+alt+. (period - increase image and frame size)

4. Placed image only: Click on image with the Direct Selection (A) tool:

ctrl+alt+, (comma - decrease image size; if stroke has been applied around the image, the stroke "frame" size is not changed)
ctrl+alt+. (period - increase image size cropping image within the confines of the original image size, the stroke "frame" matches cropped image)
