At the moment, I have to go down at the header to keep on changing views in my 3d view port. I would like to speed up my workflow, could you help me out and let me know what is the shortcut to switch between Render View, Material View * Solid View?

Thank you, W

  • $\begingroup$ Well here is what just happened to me. I switched languages for my keyboard without wanting to. Maybe this is what happened to you. So the Z key is no longer Z. With the Windows Shortcut Alt+Spacebar that happens quiet a lot to me. Hope this was it. Cheers. $\endgroup$

To switch between different viewport shading

  • Press Z - Wireframe
  • Press Shift+Z - Render View
  • Press Alt+Z - Texture View

For Solid view its a toggle key. When you press same key (repeat key) it will turn to Solid View.

If you enable the Pie Menu add-on that comes with blender (UI Pie Menu Official) you can use the shortcut Z (while your cursor is in the 3D view) and then do a gesture towards the render mode you would like to choose. Releasing the Z key after gesturing towards the option you want chooses that option.

for the Material View, you have to manually edit it in the User Preferences as in this link: http://www.oneminutevideotutorials.com/2017/06/17/toggle-between-material-viewport-shading-in-blender/
