Keyboard Shortcuts

Keyboard shortcuts can really streamline the user experience, by mapping specific functions to simple keyboard key presses. Any command in Modo can have a keyboard shortcut assigned to it. These keyboard shortcuts can also be re-assigned, customizing Modo to a users specific needs. By also allowing the Ctrl, Shift and Alt key qualifiers (including combinations thereof), you have a wide array of keys to choose from.

Note:  On Mac machines that use a limited keyboard, such as a laptop, replace the Ctrl key with the Cmd key.

To assign a keyboard shortcut to a command, perform the command from the interface, then expand the Command History viewport, located in the lower-right hand corner of the interface. Locate the command in the list (usually visible at the bottom of the history), then right-click and choose Map Command to Key. You can also assign keyboard equivalents using the Input Editor found on the System menu on the menu bar. This is useful if you want to create keyboard shortcuts for scripts or tools that don't actually appear in the default interface.
