Almost every activity in Escape Online is set up as a Search/List/Form. That is, when you start an activity you land on a search form. You enter some parameters, press Go and you land on a list. You select a record, and you land on a form.
If your work style is anything like mine, you will find that you jump back and forth a lot between these three elements. And, you know how I love keyboard shortcuts, so you can well imagine that I use them just for this purpose.
These shortcuts are as easy as 1-2-3, literally. Search is Ctrl+1. List is Ctrl+2. Form is Ctrl+3.
Combine this with Ctrl+G (Go) and keyboard shortcuts for the list and you are good to go! Pun intended. :)
