View and Set Keyboard Commands in ArtRage 4.5
ArtRage 4.5 has a long list of available commands for which you can set your own shortcuts, or use the defaults that are already set up.
How To Customise ArtRage 4.5 Shortcuts
To view existing default shortcuts and change keyboard commands in ArtRage 4.5 go to:
Edit > Set Keyboard Shortcuts…
It is easy to view the available shortcuts, and create your own custom keyboard combinations, to suit your personal workflow preferences, accessibility issues or the need for specific commands.
- Step 1: Open the Keyboard Shortcuts Panel
- Step 2: Find the Shortcuts that you want to change
- Step 3: Edit the Shortcuts
You can also save and import custom shortcut sets.
This is especially useful for:
- Shared computers
- Sharing specific shortcut set ups with other ArtRage users
- Creating custom set ups for specific tasks
- Creating custom set ups for different hardware
Step 1: Open the Keyboard Shortcuts Panel
You will see a pop up window in the middle of the screen. It lists all the commands that can be customised.
Many of the most common commands come with default shortcuts already set up. You can change these. There are also a lot of blank commands for you to choose from (if you decide that you need them).
Step 2: Find the Shortcuts that you want to change
The different shortcuts are organised into Groups.
You can expand or collapse each group individually in order to view the available commands. Use the menu button on the top right to expand or collapse all groups at once, as well as to save or open custom shortcut sets.
Step 3: Edit the Shortcut
- Click ‘X’ to clear the current shortcut
- Click ‘…’ to set a new keyboard shortcut for that command
- Click the ‘+’ symbol to create a new keyboard shortcut for an empty command.
- Press the new key combination to set it. If you hit the wrong key, just try again.
- Once you have chosen the shortcut that you want, click ‘OK’
- You can add more than one shortcut to a command
- Changes will not be visible on Mac OS X until you restart ArtRage
