I haven’t used SketchUp in a handful of years and recently downloaded the app to get back into 3D modelling again. As it turns out, I managed to forget all keyboard shortcuts except push/pull and pan — so I’m thinking of making shortcut stickers for my keyboard.
Below is a visual representation I made of (most of) the default shortcuts for SketchUp Pro on Mac. I mapped the shortcuts from the Quick Reference Card and the Mac menu bar.
What are some of your most valuable key combinations? Any tips on obvious hotkeys (tools or commands) that could be added to the default ones?
I would like to keep the default ones as they are, and add other useful shortcuts. For example, I was thinking of adding:
[Shift] + [G] for “Explode” as shown in this thread
(however, out of habit I’m actually pressing [Cmd] + [Shift] + [G], which is the standard “Ungroup” in other apps. As you might know Cmd can’t be used in user-defined shortcuts, but SketchUp luckily seems to ignore that I’m also pressing Cmd)
[Shift] + [V] for “Paste in Place”
(even though I’m pressing [Cmd] + [Shift] + [V] out of habit)
Same here. I remapped so many of the most used tools that I have no idea what the defaults would be. The benefit is that I pretty much never have to click on a tool while working, let alone have a single one taking up space on the screen.
