Is it possible to change a key Y to C for making all keys of X/Y/Z axes nearby?

    $\begingroup$ No, I don't think that is possible at the moment, as far as I know. Those seem to be hardcoded and not accessible from the Key Map Editor $\endgroup$ Apr 8, 2017 at 0:22

It's not so hard as looks like, you can set it in "User Preferences" ("Input" tab):

  • You need to find the drop-down list "Transform Modal Map" (it is near end of the list)

  • There isn't Y-axis in it, but you can add and setup it by pressing "Add new" button.

  • Next, select "Orientation Y axis" and setup shortcut

enter image description here

Hey, what about "Shift-Y" which stands for "transform along every axes BUT Y"?

For "Shift-Y" analog use Orientation Y plane. This is a final setup:

For versions 2.80 above, here's what you should do:

Just simply go to Preferences > Keymap, and then scroll down until you find Transform Modal Map, and within that dropdown you can now change those hotkeys by default.

There's absolutely no need to make your own keymap like the posts above.

I changed mines to X C V instead of X Y Z as you can see, I changed mines to XCV instead of XYZ
