Maya – Hotkeys

Hotkeys always comes in handy, and can always be a good thing to find out what they are. Here is a list of some hotkeys I have found.

  • F1 = Help
  • F2 = ShowAnimationUI
  • F3 = ShowPolygonsUI
  • F4 = ShowModelingUI
  • F5 = ShowDynamicsUI
  • F6 = ShowRenderingUI
  • F8 = SelectToggleMode
  • F9 = SelectVertexMask
  • F10 = SelectEdgeMask
  • F11 = SelectFacetMask
  • F12 = SelectUVMask

Here are some more I have ran into that can be useful.

  • Z = Redo
  • 0 = HfAttrSelect_Menu
  • 1 = LowQualityDisplay
  • 2 = MediumQualityDisplay
  • 3 = HighQualityDisplay
  • 4 = DisplayWireframe
  • 5 = DisplayShaded
  • 6 = DisplayShadedAndTextured
  • 7 = DisplayLight
  • 8 = PaintEffectsPanel

You can find these, and more by going to Window>Settings/Preferences>Hotkey Editor. Then after the pop up window shows up of the editor, on the far right is a List All.. button. Clicking on this can show you what all the keys are tied to. It also tells you which keys are also free as well.

About Tempest

Always had a love for gaming, and as a result.. I took interest in wanting to make them someday. I have a degree in Animation and Game Design which I gained in 2010 from Virginia College. I have to say my greatest interests in modeling would be a toss up between ships from the 1800s as well as earlier and architecture such as castles. Always had a love of both as most my friends know from my fascination with pirates.
