View Full Version : A visual explorer for LightWave3D default keyboard shortcuts

08-01-2013, 06:23 PM
Pretty much what it says on the "Tin" a visual default keyboard shortcut guide for LightWave3D.

http://www.lightwiki.com/keyboard it's handy on a second monitor when you go into melt down mode and excellent starting point for new users, I learnt a few new commands.


Full Credits must go to the original author (Blender version (http://waldobronchart.be/)) for the concept and initial code ... All I done was tweak it and re_write the Java "ps was still pretty mighty and tedious " donate to Lwiki if you can so we can survive http:///www.lightwiki.com/keyboard/images/paypaldonate.png Donate Here (http://www.lightwik.com/donate):)

any issues or errors let me know..

re server issue ... the migration did happen last week but the data centre had a power outage "hostgator" and everyone dropped

There we go. That's pretty cool.
I wonder though, since there isn't any overlap, can you also create 2 that are all of Layout's and all of Modeler's shortcuts in addition to these?

I dont really get what you mean? ... I am sure I covered all shortcuts , do you see the drop down menu? , that has modeler and layout shortcuts

Wow, thanks for putting this together. :)

I think wyattharris means one keyboard for modeler instead of separate keyboards for Modeler:General, Modeler:View, Modeler:Create, etc.

I don't see some modeler keyboard I use: Expand selection, Contract selection, Select ring (ctrl-right arrow), for invert selection I use (shift+') but you have invert connected (shift+/) which seems to do the same thing. I'm also not seeing swap FG/BG layer (') and make curve (ctrl+p).

So Green Keys are keys that have a keyboard shortcut that isn't currently shown? Cool.

I learned a few new ones too.

Just going over my DAblan LW9 training again, and needed to remember a shortcut without backtracking. Remembered, and found, this again. Thought I'd bring it back up to the top for others who are unaware of it. Thanks again!
