[Sidefx-houdini-list] Newbie question on keyboard.
Tuesday, 28 August 2007 Tue, 28 Aug '07
Your keyboard hotkeys are in your $HOME/houdiniX.X/HotkeyOverrides file. To reset to factory hotkeys, you could set up an alias: # reset to factory alias 'r' 'mv $HOME/houdiniX.X/HotkeyOverrides $HOME/houdiniX.X/HotkeyOverrides.tmp' # reset to my custom hotkeys alias 'h' 'mv $HOME/houdiniX.X/HotkeyOverrides.tmp $HOME/houdiniX.X/HotkeyOverrides' If you want to run the alias from houdini, you can set up the aliases there, you just need to add "unix" before the mv command. I think you have to restart Houdini for the new hotkeys to take effect though. Sean Jordi Bares wrote:
Oh no... It was about user-centric keyboard shortcuts, so I can select a keyboard setup when needed. Some people like me have to jump from software to software far too often and I simply can't mentally switch so fast, therefore I have a keyboard shortcut setup on both XSI, Maya so I get a decent compromise for all of them. I would just want to do this also for Houdini so the transition is as easy as possible. The problem then is that someone that is helping me needs to reset the keyboard shortcuts every time I need help, this could be done nicely like XSI does it where you can save your keyboard shortcuts and even distribute them to other machienes so wherever I sit down I have that setup ready. Hope it is a bit more clear now. jb On 18/8/07 00:35, "Ammon Riley" <ammon.riley at gmail.com> wrote: > On 8/17/07, Jordi Bares <jordibares at the-mill.com> wrote: > >> Sorry for the dumb question but is there any keyboard manager in Houdini9 so >> I can swap from factory keyboard to mine?
