Premiere Pro CS6 & CC Essential Keyboard Shortcuts Cheatsheet

Web Link Published 7/22/13 Last updated on 6/9/19

This is a handout I give my students and workshop participants when I teach Adobe Premiere Pro CS6 and CC. This sheet utilizes the new CS6/CC shortcuts - not the CS5.5 shortcuts which many of us are accustomed to using which there are differences.


Oct. 6, 2014
- Added background color to description column in tables.
- Moved column descriptions to first column and shortcuts to second.
- Added a few new shortcuts.
- Updated resource Featured Image.

Sept. 29, 2014
- Changed typeface to Times New Roman so users can tell the difference between an I (cap i), l (lower L), and a 1. It's important since it includes keyboard shortcuts.
- Enlarged the type to size 12.
- Changed a few words here and there.

I updated my "Premiere Pro CS6 & CC Essential Keyboard Shortcuts Cheatsheet" on the Adobe Education Exchange for those of you following the resource. I included a list of changes to the document in the post description and a featured image in case you're curious.

I updated the PrPro Keyboard Shortcut sheet to include Windows & Mac keyboard combinations and a diagram of the Tools panel with keyboard shortcuts. It's also up-to-date in stating that it's for CS6 and CC.
