  • short cut keys or preferences

    I am a new user to Altium. I am having trouble finding out how to setup preferences or use short cut keys. For instance, in one of Roberts videos, he uses the +- key to add a via, move to the bottom layer and continue routing. I was able to do the same thing but I was using my mouse wheel. But now I am not able to that anymore. Is there a list of short cut keys or information on how to setup preferences. Any assistance would be appreciated.

          Is there a list of short cut keys
          - there is a button called "Shortcuts" in the bottom right corner. It will show you list of shortcuts

          he uses the +- key to add a via, move to the bottom layer and continue routing
          - to use +/- you need to have numeric keyboard. it may not work on laptops

          If you would like to setup your own shortcuts, just right click on toolbar -> Customize. Then press "New .."

            Hello robert
            I made a Quilted Wing and got out of it, but Gerber did not give me, and I do not know what the problem is. I wanted anyone who could help me.
            Thanks for the time

                I believe you may need to make this assignment in your mouse software (or, do you see MOUSE4, MOUSE5, MOUSE6 somewhere in Altium?)
