Divi keyboard shortcut keys are one of those features you never knew you needed until you try them out. For many of us, they are an underutilized time-saving feature that should be added to our web design work-flow.

Using these quick access keys on your keyboard to access various options within the Divi Visual Builder and Divi Builder may only save you a second or so each time, but if you are building a lot of Divi websites then it all adds up to make for a smoother, faster way of working with Divi.

I created my own cheat-sheet of the Visual Builder shortcut keys (I rarely use the back-end builder now) which I have handy in case I forget what-does-what. If you have difficulty remembering the shortcut keys too, then you can download a copy below.
