Configuring Shortcuts

Predefined shortcuts are available for OpenToonz tools, modifiers and menu commands. They can be customized, and new shortcuts can be added for undefined items.

Shortcuts are related to the user, i.e. each user in the system can have a different set of shortcuts.

  3. Select the command or tool name in the list.
  4. Press the keyboard key, or combination of keys, you want to assign as shortcut.
