Changing navigation keys Dec. 28, 2017, 8:15 p.m.

Is there a way to change the default keys for navigation? I'm willing to learn everything else about Houdini but I have my navigation consistent among the apps I use (Cinema 4D, Modo) and I'd like to be able to carry that over in Houdini if possible. If not possible, that would ridiculous as the app seems so powerful.

I would like to change it to:

Pan: Alt + Shift + LMB
Zoom: Alt + Ctrl + LMB
Rotate: Alt + LMB (already by default)

Is this possible? How?

I'm happy to dig into some files to hack it together if necessary.


Cmd-E & Alt-E shortcut keys not working [Mac 16.5.268] Dec. 22, 2017, 12:44 p.m.

I'm trying to learn VEX and prefer to have the larger vex editing window open which according to 16.5.268 can be accessed by typing Cmd + E or Alt + E. Neither work on my machine.

Anyone else having this issue?

Are you running in Detail mode on the wrangle?

Also what is the value of sample? If it is 0 then your step_angle will never increase theta and you will end up in an infinite loop.

THAT'S what it was, thanks Enivob! Sorry, I'm still new to VEX, but it makes sense now. Thanks for your help!
