I know you can add a shortcut, but can I change the shortcut on the Add Node menu? I would like to make the S key default to Shader instead of to Search. Can this be done? For example I want to be able to add a diffuse node using the key set: Shift+A > S > D

enter image description here

  • $\begingroup$ i think this is dynamically generated in this way : starting from the top -> the shortcut is the first letter--> if it is taken then the second letter---> if it is taken the third ..... $\endgroup$ – Chebhou May 26 '15 at 16:37

    $\begingroup$ if you can find the definition of this menu ( some .py file I hope ) move the "Search" entry down and the "Shader" will have the S shortcut $\endgroup$ – Chebhou May 26 '15 at 18:04
  • $\begingroup$ I might try that, I'll see $\endgroup$ – VRM May 26 '15 at 18:38

No, blender GUI was not designed with that in mind, it's something I've tried to do for a long time. We can only hope or ask developers to give us facilities to customize menu shortcuts.

Here are some discussions that I started on this topic:

Personally I think it is quite necessary because many users require this. I think we should begin to wonder where can we make requests to the developers?

  • $\begingroup$ @NoviceInDisguise i think it worked out, since probably most of us can at least understand, and chebhou was able to translate for those that weren't. $\endgroup$ – Scalia May 26 '15 at 20:33
  • $\begingroup$ Yes, it just isn't a good regular practice I don't think. If the person posting can not write in english, it is certainly better to post a spanish post than none at all $\endgroup$ – VRM May 26 '15 at 21:19
  • $\begingroup$ bf-funboard is the mailing list for feature request. The "fun"part is short for "functionality", lists.blender.org/mailman/listinfo/bf-funboard bf- funboard es la lista de correo de solicitud de función . La parte "diversión" es la abreviatura de " funcionalidad " $\endgroup$ – MarcClintDion May 27 '15 at 8:55

The characters underlined in the menus are the shortcuts. Your attempt at ⇧ Shift A>S>D is close, except the shortcut for Shader is h not s - use ⇧ Shift A>H>D

  • $\begingroup$ I want to change it to S. The problem is that it is H. I want it like the change shader menu. $\endgroup$ – VRM May 27 '15 at 9:50
