Overview of the Keyboard Shortcuts Editor

The Keyboard Shortcut Editor is divided into four areas: The Shortcut List, Menu Bar, Editor Window, and Keyboard Layout Preview.


Shortcut List


This window lists all the shortcut keys in the currently loaded keyboard layout, grouped by their functionality. You can select the layout from the top left of the window, in the image above Default is chosen: 'Layout (Default)'. From the context menu (right-click), you can Move, Remove or Duplicate items. To edit an existing shortcut, select it in the shortcut list.

Editor Window


The options available for each shortcut in the editor window are mainly dependent upon the type of shortcut being created or edited.
The four main types of shortcuts are Template keys, Control Command keys, Timeline keys and Layout keys.


Note: From Viz Mosart 4.x, Template Router is the new name for what was Wall Manager.

If there is a shortcut of type AUTO or CONTINUE, it shows how many continue points there are left.
