The preferences are stored globally and affect all UMotion projects.


The shortcuts for every action that can be performed in UMotion can be set in this tab.

Preferences Window - Shortcuts

There are three shortcut categories:

Every shortcut is triggered when the Clip Editor, Pose Editor or Scene View is selected and the appropriate shortcut is pressed. When a UI element has a shortcut applied, it is displayed in its tooltip. To modify a shortcut, select the appropriate shortcut in the list and change its key combination by using the following UI components:

UI Element Description
Key By pressing this button, a dialog window pops up that listens to any key press event. The pressed key is then applied to the current selected shortcut.

Bind Shortcut Key Dialog

The Abort button closes the dialog without changing the binded key.
The None button removes a binded key.
Modifiers The modifiers are additional buttons like Control, Shift and Alt that have to be pressed to trigger the shortcut.
Use Defaults Resets all shortcuts to their default binding.
OK Closes this window.
