Try Studio 3T for Free

Hotkeys

Customize Shortcuts

While Studio 3T comes with a range of default hotkeys (see below), you also have the option to create and customize your own shortcuts.

Open Studio 3T > Preferences and navigate to the Keymap tab. Here you can search for functionalities and edit them by right clicking and selecting Add shortcut

Here you can assign the desired shortcuts to each action. You can find shortcuts either by browsing through the tree or by utilizing the search. Each action allows you to assign up to three new shortcuts, remove individual or all shortcuts, or reset the action’s shortcuts back to their default values.

You can also remove all shortcuts from all actions or all actions within a category, or reset them to default.

Customize Shortcuts

If you’re moving to a new instance of Studio 3T, you have the option to save your current keymap configuration. Clicking Export keymap will create an XML file which you can import to the new instance by clicking Import keymap.
