A comprehensive list of Proclaim hotkeys

Hotkeys, or keyboard shortcuts, make common tasks faster and easier. Proclaim has a number of these keyboard shortcuts built in, but we’ve never published a comprehensive list of them—until now. Proclaim hotkeys fall into three major categories based on when they’re useful.

(Mac users: use the “command” key in place of the “control” key.)


Standard editing hotkeys work all the time.

  • Cut: Ctrl+X
  • Copy: Ctrl+C
  • Paste: Ctrl+V
  • Duplicate: Ctrl+D
  • Delete: Delete
  • Undo: Ctrl+Z
  • Redo: Ctrl+Y

While building a presentation

Every item in the “Add item” menu has a hotkey to save you time. Using these hotkeys, you could build most presentations without even touching your mouse.

  • Song: Ctrl+Shift+S
  • Bible: Ctrl+Shift+B
  • On-Screen Bible: Ctrl + Shift + O
  • Video: Ctrl+Shift+V
  • Image slideshow: Ctrl+Shift+I
  • Content: Ctrl+Shift+C
  • Web page: Ctrl+Shift+W
  • Survey: Ctrl+Shift+Y
  • Survey results: Ctrl+Shift+R
  • Import PowerPoint: Ctrl+Shift+P

While running a presentation On Air

In the middle of a presentation, speed is extremely important. That’s why we have a few critical hotkeys designed to help you react fast.

  • Go On Air from beginning: F5
  • Go On Air from current slide: Shift+F5
  • Blank slide: F10
  • Logo: F11
  • Next slide: Right arrow
  • Previous slide: Left arrow
  • Jump to first slide in set: Space
  • Go off air: Escape

Most helpful of all, while running a presentation with a song selected, use the key listed below each slide to jump quickly between parts of the song—verse 1 (1), chorus (C), bridge (B), etc.

This way, if the worship leader quickly decides to repeat the chorus an extra time or skip a verse, you can keep up.


Proclaim Church Presentation Software lives in the cloud, so you can collaborate with your team from wherever they work best. No more emailing large files or fumbling with USB sticks. Best of all, it connects with many of the tools you already use, like Planning Center Online, CCLI SongSelect, and Graceway Media. Try it for free at ProclaimOnline.com/Download.
