I've changed my 'view to selected' hotkey and would like to make it a toggle shortcut that allows me either to focus on the selected object or toggle back to the whole scene. Can anyone help me with that?

  • $\begingroup$ How would Blender know when to focus on a single object or the whole scene? $\endgroup$ – Duarte Farrajota Ramos May 13 at 16:56
  • $\begingroup$ Let's say it would toggle focus in between the selected object and a camera angle the fits all the geometry, this way you can visualize back and forth small parts of a complex geometry or scene for example without having to hide everything else...understand? $\endgroup$ – Ramon Lima May 13 at 20:54

Use the "forward slash (/)" in the number pad on your keyboard to toggle 'View Selected'

View to Selected

Goto>Tool Shelf Look for "Display Tab" at the corners where there are other Tabs. You will see "View to Selected" in the display tab options.!

  • $\begingroup$ Yeah but that's the isolate isn't it? I'd like to be able to switch between 'view selected' and the 'home' button functionality in the same shortcut. $\endgroup$ – Ramon Lima May 13 at 21:02
  • $\begingroup$ If you mean "without hidden other objects" then you are talking of "view to selected" $\endgroup$ – Israel Bamidele May 14 at 5:02
  • $\begingroup$ I never meant hiding other objects in scene, but yeah...'view to selected' $\endgroup$ – Ramon Lima May 14 at 14:43
  • $\begingroup$ Have you been able to get what you are looking for from my edited answer? $\endgroup$ – Israel Bamidele May 14 at 15:31
  • $\begingroup$ I get what you mean now, thanks...but it was just mispelling...the issue remains the same; What do I have to do to have both 'view to selected' and 'view the whole scene'(like the HOME button) in a toggle shortcut? $\endgroup$ – Ramon Lima May 14 at 15:47

For creating shortcuts

Goto>File>User Preferences Under User Preferences, Goto>Input tab>3D View>3D View (Global)

Additional shortcuts can be created there
