I can add rows conveniently using Option+Shift+Up Arrow (insert above) or Option+Shift+Down Arrow(insert below).

Is there a keyboard shortcut to delete the current row?


By default, no, there's no shortcut.

You can create one yourself though:

  1. Open System PreferencesKeyboardShortcutsApp Shortcuts.

  2. Click the + button to add a new shortcut.

  3. Set the Application to Numbers.app, and the Menu Title to Delete Row.

  4. Set your keyboard shortcut and press Add.

    Thank you! I set it to Cmd+Shift+D. It doesn't seem to conflict with anything at the moment. – Nelu Dec 16 '13 at 21:39
  • This doesn't seem to work in Numbers 3.5.2 under Yosemite – evolutionxbox Jan 21 '15 at 20:43
  • @evo Seems to work fine for me still in Numbers 4.3 on High Sierra. – grg Oct 18 '17 at 8:20
  • @grgarside yeah this is now working, but I can confirm it still doesn't in Numbers 3.5.2 under Yosemite. – evolutionxbox Oct 18 '17 at 8:52
  • I found that this works if the Menu Title is Delete Rows instead of Delete Row. – htomita Nov 28 '18 at 17:46

As of at least Numbers 4.3.1, there is a menu item in the Table menu for deleting the current row (as well as one for deleting the current column), with keyboard shortcuts:

Delete Row: Shift+Command+X

Delete Column: Shift+Command+Y
