As I'm getting more into Character Animator... the more I'm becoming aware of ShortCut Keys... those little  key combination that can help!

So I thought I would start this post with the single purpose of collecting and sharing any shortcuts that may be useful!

If you know of a ShortCut then please add it to the list...

If you select a Panel.. the blue line around the panel shows it is selected... and you press the Plus & Minus key.... the panel will open up full size.

Give it a go and you'll see what I mean.

PS. I'm using a Mac UK configured keyboard, so you may find it is a different key. If it is please add your finding here.

Change Puppet Layer Order (scene panel): CMD / CTRL + ArrowUP/DOWN

Show all keyboard triggers and handles:     CMD / CTRL + "/"   (deutsch: cmd + "-")
