    Keyboard Shortcuts

    (That's not https this time )

    Even I didn't know a few of these, so check them out! One or two (involving the Enter key) are implemented in the next build, so they won't immediately work in 0.98.3.

  • Hey that's handy, I'd forgotten I added some of these.

    Looks from that like the Picture Editor in particular needs many more shortcuts, David .

  • How about Control +z?

  • Nice! I wasn't aware of a few of these.

    Might I suggest the following for the Picture Editor:

    F - Freestyle select

    R - Cycle through Shape select (Rectangle, Polygon, Ellipse)

    W - Toggle between Wand and Color select

    B - Toggle between Brush and Pencil

    E - Eraser

    G - Toggle between Flood Fill (G is the same in Photoshop ) and Color Replacer

    L - Line

    S - Cycle through Shape tools (Rectangle, Polygon, Ellipse)

    H - Hotspot

    I - Image Point

    [ and ] - Scale brush size down/up (same as Photoshop)

    Arrows - Nudge hotspot/Image point when those tools are selected

    - and + - Cycle through animation frames

    Ctrl M, Ctrl F - Mirror and Flip

    Ctrl R - Rotate by 90 degrees clockwise (for other degrees use menu)

    Number Row (not numpad) - Set hardness to number*10 (for instance, 1 would set hardness to 10, 5 would set hardness to 50, 0 would set hardness to 100, etc.)

    Uh... I can't think of any more right now

    Also, one thing that's bugged me is the numpad shortcut for setting the hotspot moves the hotspot even when the hotspot tool isn't selected. I think that should be addressed. It should only move the hotspot when you have the hotspot tool selected so you can see where it's moving to.

  • You missed the most important one deadeye: Holding Alt to get the Colour picker when using anything where the colour is important (that means we don't have to change the hotspot-for-all-frames-tool.)

  • What is the best way to clean my keyboard? I changed my keyboard back to an old keyboard from a 2000 Gateway computer I had. The problem is the keyboard is very dirty and the buttons don't come off. I cleaned the surface with windex but the inside is very dirty. What is the best way to clean the inside of the keyboard?

  • Put it in the washing machine.

  • I call spambot for irrelevant postings.

  • No evidence of any spam or advertising, I think it's just someone who wants to clean their keyboard,

  • Ashley, I know this is an old thread but I agree with deadeye -- it would it great to get more keyboard shortcuts for the image editing within Construct 2. It would really help a lot and I could actually do pixel art within Construct 2 instead of importing everything.

    Edit: oops, I didn't realize this was for Construct Classic, I'm actually recommending this for Construct 2
