Recently I found out that I can introduce drivers in a very simplified method;

  • copy a full path with Ctrl+Alt+Shift+C, and
  • paste this to any Number buttons with an # inserted at the beginning.

CAUTION : This seems to be an improper method since it produces some warnings at the driver editor.

My interest here is whether there is a hot key to skip the "insert # at the beginning". As you might know, pasting a number to a number button can be accomplished simply by the Ctrl+V hot key, and I am curious if there is one for inserting drivers.

    $\begingroup$ It's a warning to say, in as much as this may work, it's better practice to add that property as a driver variable. If the driving property is on the same object eg driving object scale with its x location would use self.location.x and check the "use self" checkbox. The path bpy.data.objects["Arrow"].rotation_euler[0] will break if object is renamed, and needs to be updated if duplicating the object and its dirvers, else it will be driven by the original. $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ I knew how to remove the warning but didn't know why this produces one. I'll bear in mind. Thanks. $\endgroup$
