# Custom shortcut

i want to make shortcut for wire displaying (not wireframe mode, displaying wire on top of solid mode), you can find it in the Properties window> Object tab> Display. when i right click there is no "add shortcut" option

• See blender.stackexchange.com/q/17822/599. Note that since this is a per-object setting, setting up a shortcut with wm.context_toggle will only toggle wire for that particular object. To get the behavior you want (toggling wire for all objects?), you'll have to write your own operator – gandalf3 Jul 19 '15 at 18:46

Donwload the "Display tools" add-on and assing a shortcut to the "wire on" option

This allows you to apply effetc to multiple selected object at the same time.

This is a way in wich you can hack the problem.

• Very useful solution for displaying wires to selected objects, there's also a way to display wires to all objects with amaranth tools, thank you for the help – Ninjabdou Jul 20 '15 at 14:25

I've found a bit tricky solution, but it works. It's based on keyframing and allows you to switch between desired modes using right and left numpad arrows.

Go to frame 0 and press I while hovering the cursor over the Wire box in the Display panel of the Object header.

Now go to frame 1 (press ), check the Wire box and press I again. Now you may easily switch between solid and wire modes using left and right arrows.

There's a way to display wires for all objects with the amaranth tools, you can find it in the N panel > Display > Display wireframe, and you can assign a shortcut to it.
