Shortcut key to close print preview?

Is there a way to close Print Preview with the keyboard? I haven't found one, but I may be overlooking it. If it doesn't conflict with something else, Esc would be nice.

QCAD 3.21.3.0 on Xubuntu 16.04, 64-bit, if it matters

Thanks.

On Win and Mac it supposed to work with Ctrl+Q and ⌘Q. But it is broken .... :cry:

I don't know how it is on Xubuntu but on macOS you can change the preview back to normal view by just repeating the command for print preview (SHIFT+CMD+P).

Ctrl+Q quits QCAD, but Ctrl+Shift+P does in fact toggle Print Preview, not just activate it.

Thanks.

Yep - my bad! I misinterpreted the Shortcut List. Sorry for that!

Ctrl+Q will close something else but to close QCAD on Win it has to be Alt+F4.

I agree - Esc or QQ would be a suitable Shortcut to close the Preview and unfortunately we have no chance to change the settings by ourself below "Tool Settings" :(

If I get you right you are searching for CTRL+Shift+P which takes you to print preview and back as well.
