Changing Mouse Navigation Mode

The “Navigation Style” drop-down in Packer-IO enables users to customize the default 3D-Viewport mouse navigation to a mode that aligns more closely with their habits or preferences. By default, the 3D-Viewport mouse navigation is set to a Blender-style interaction. If you prefer to use a mouse navigation style similar to other software you are familiar with, you can easily switch to your preferred style using the “Navigation Style” drop-down menu.

Changing the Keboard Shortcuts

To customize the keyboard shortcuts, navigate to the “Settings” menu. Here, you can select your preferred 3D application to simulate its viewport navigation style.

The predefined keyboard shortcuts in Packer-IO are an eclectic mix, incorporating elements familiar to artists from various applications. Some shortcuts are universal, such as:

  • CTRL+O for opening files.
  • CTRL+S for saving data.

Others are based on associations, for instance:

  • D for Dashboard or Stash.
  • O for Outliner (as in Blender) or Manager.
  • S for Show UV Seams.

However, all these shortcuts are easily customizable to suit the user’s preferences and habits.

For modifying keyboard shortcuts for various actions such as importing objects, exporting, toggling wireframe or seam overlays, etc., simply click on the button displaying the current shortcut. Then, press the key you wish to assign as the new shortcut. This change is immediate and will be saved as the default shortcut for future use.
