Shortcuts (Issues since Latest Update)

Since the lastest update I am experiencing the following issues.

Page Up and Page Down shortcuts to quickly flip through scenes pages up and down in tool trays unless you click on a blank portion of the screen.

Shortcut “u” used to Update Scene will not work unless you click on a blank portion of the screen before attempting to use it.

Esc key used to be my default to get to Select tool and cancel any tool I might have been using, now default is space bar and can’t seem to change that.

Anyone else experiencing similar issues?

Users should not reassign ESC key.

  • It is used to reset most all native and Ruby tools to their initial state, without changing tool.
  • It cancels a component instance placement from the Components panel.
  • It backs out 1 level from an editing context whilst the Select tool is active.
  • It dismisses most native dialog windows.

ALT+ESC is a Windows system shortcut that cycles between active applications (without showing the jump menu.)

CTRL+ESC is a Windows system shortcut that activates the Start Menu.


Try assigning something like ALT+S.

Space bar has always been the default for select…
