I know the O button is the shortcut for enabling the Proportional Editing mode. What if I want to change its type to Connected type using a shortcut? enter image description here

Are there any shortcuts for enabling the proportional editing modes (such as Connected and Projected (2D)) and falloff types (such as Sphere, Linear, Random etc.)? enter image description here


1 Answer 1


You can turn on Connected Proportional Editing by pressing Alt+O.


Note that if pressing that shortcut again it will turn off Proportional Editing at all. If you'd like just to turn off Connected but leave Proportional Editing you should press O again.

You can loop through all the falloff types by pressing Shift + O.


  • $\begingroup$ Thanks @Mr Zak. Very intuitive shortcuts. Why I haven't found it out by myself? Wonder why there is no shortcut for a 'Projected (2D) mode' though? $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ @Gonzou I guess that was never finished? There's also no separate icon for projected 2D mode, which can be confusing. I tried designing an icon for it, but it wasn't very good :P $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ @gandalf3 I think you proposed a very simple, consistent and compact (with other icons) graphical solution for a 'Projected (2D) mode'. I like it :). Any chances it'll appear in a future Blender version releases? $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ @Gonzou Doesn't seem like it.. There is another proposal to entirely change the way picking proportional editing modes works. $\endgroup$
