In the case when you have to perform many such actions, you often have to take your hands off the keyboard and grab the mouse, which is not the best way to affect the speed of work. This is especially noticeable when editing tables , when during the work you regularly have to delete and insert rows with columns, join or split cells, change the alignment of text in them.

Using this method can significantly increase the speed of working with complex documents, which becomes especially noticeable if the user knows the blind method of quick typing.
