I'm trying to add a hotkey to the Annotate Tool so that I can hold down shift to draw a straight line. I can find how to change the existing hotkey by searching for "annotate"

enter image description here

How can I add more hotkeys to the Annotate tool? (hold shift to draw straight lines mainly)

  • $\begingroup$ Not quite what you need, but SHIFT-SPACE > 7 will draw a straight line with the Annotation tool. $\endgroup$

Edit

The default shortcut for annotate straight-lines is D + ALT + LMB.

Change the hotkeys for that keymap.

  • $\begingroup$ I have the annotation tool hotkeyed, what I want to do is add a hotkey to draw a straight line when I have the annotation tool active. Like how Ctrl+LMB erases, I'd like to be able to hold down shift to draw a straight line. $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ Not exactly what I want, Ideally I'd like it to work like it does in photoshop where you can hold shift as a modifier to make straight lines but still be able to draw free-hand. I dont want to have to switch tool just to draw straight lines. What Im looking for is how to add more hotkeys to the "Generic Tool: Annotate" like this: Example Image I guess I have to add a hotkey to change tool to draw straight lines, not ideal but maybe Blender cant do it any other way $\endgroup$
