A. Keyboard Shortcuts


There are numerous keyboard shoutcuts that you can use to facillitate your modeling.  They do not add new functionality.  For every shortcut there is an equivalent toolbar button or menu command that you may use instead.
Commands that are available in more that one editing mode use the same shortcut.  The control-style and most lower case shortcuts fall into this category.  Some shortcuts perform different command in each editor.  These are generally the uppercase ones.
You can also use shortcuts for most menu commands.  The name of each shortcut is shown in the menu to the right of the command name.

Viewpoint Shortcuts

You can use the numeric keypad to switch the working view to any of the standard viewpoints.
