Shortcut Mode

For those of you that have Version 10 of ACD/1D NMR Processor, I sure hope that you have discovered what the Shortcut button in the top left hand corner of the interface does.

What is Shortcut Mode?

It’s a mode in the software that provides a workflow that allows a user to manually prepare a 1D 1H NMR spectrum as quickly as possible.

That’s the technical description. I’d prefer to say,

"it’s the perfect balance between fully automated processing and full manual processing."

So if you aren’t comfortable with completely automating your processing, but want to save some time, Shortcut Mode is likely for you.
