Default Keyboard Shortcuts

For example, the 2 Point Arc tool shortcut: A has three types of input. If you enter a number, that number will be the Bulge distance — how far the arc curves out. If you enter a number followed by the letter R, the arc will have that Radius. And if you enter a number with an S, that number will be the number of arc Segments. Or look at the instructions for the Eraser — using this tool with the Ctrl key softens edges hides and smooths , while the Shift key just hides edges.

But, when I exit and restart SketchUp, it is back again. Any idea why? Or, is there a way to really delete the defaults? You have a great site. Your tips are very important for Sketchup users.

The issue might be caused by an antivirus software which prevent Sketchup to modify registry.

CUSTOM Keyboard Shortcuts in SketchUp

So far so good. Thanks Matt. Great stuff. Hello… Good Day!! Can you send me the list of detailed shortcut keys for sketch up… Thank You and God Bless!! Just sign up for my email list, and you can download it. I got all excited about mastering the shortcuts today. I got several of them set up, used them all day, and the power went out.

For example, I had X set up to toggle X-ray view. I was also not able to import your shortcuts. The Mac version has no Import button on the Shortcuts Pref pane. If I am not able to import your shortcuts could you explain how you created them? Great tutorial Matt, shortcuts are the definitive way to go. I think that list gets dynamically generated on Macs, so you probably need to enter the shortcuts manually and then they will be transferred over to the new version when you update.

I use a USB gaming device with my left hand, a Belkin n52e which fits comfortably in your hand and your fingers has 3 rows of easily progeamable buttons a and a thumb pad I assign all of the views to. I never even touch the keyboard except to enter a dimension. Between the n52e and mouse, I can fly with the drawing. The buttons are easy to program as the can be assigned a single key, a key combination or a macro of several key actions. If you want to go nuts you can toggle the gaming device from a blue Led to a red and green one which allows you to have 3 separate sets of shortcuts but using just 1 works fine for me.

Hands on n52e and mouse and almost never have to look down at the keyboard. Hope this helps. Thanks for sharing, this is a nice tip IMO. I also use shortcuts, mine are a bit different. Native SU …. Your email address will not be published. Spring sale on mind.
