To make the camera to match the current 3D viewport, all the answers/tutorials on the web are using this shortcut: Ctrl + Alt + Numpad 0

However, I do not have a Numpad and I'm using Mac and it doesn't seem like that shortcut combo is working.

Is there a way to do that without using the keyboard shortcut? I'm guessing there has to be a matching menu item in the editor.

I'm also simply looking for a menu item without having to 'emulate' the numpad.


You can try one of those ...

  • go to menu View > Align View > Align Active Camera to View or
  • earch for operator Align Active Camera to View or
  • add to Favourites by right click on operator > Add to Quick Favourites ...
    and in viewport call by Q or

enter image description here

  • go to User Preferences > Keymap and assign new shortcut
  • $\begingroup$ Thank you! When I got to that menu item, it was greyed out which explains why the shortcut wasn't working, but that's a different issue altogether. $\endgroup$
