Formatting Shortcuts in SSDT for SSIS Packages

When developing SSIS packages the tasks and transformations tend to be misaligned after dragging them onto the designer from the SSIS toolbox. You can correct this by selecting Format > Auto Layout > Diagram.
When you have multiple packages in your SSIS project this can become quite tedious. There is a quicker way by setting up a keyboard shortcut to align everything up. I have found this to be the most useful shortcut I have come across while developing SSIS projects.

To set up the shortcut you can follow the steps below.

Step 1:
Select Tools > Options

Step 2:
Select Keyboard under Environment on the left in the pop-up. Then select Format.Diagram on the right hand side of the pop-up.

Step 3:
Click in the “Press shortcut keys” dialogue block and push the keys on your keyboard you would like to use for this option and click Ok. I recommend using CTRL + F, CTRL + D as it is easier to remember.

Now your shortcut is set up for you to use to align everything perfectly in each package!
