This page provides information about the mouse and key shortcuts in Chaos Vantage.



Vantage provides a list of mouse and key shortcuts for easier navigation and commands execution. The navigation can be set to work as in 3ds Max, SketchUp or Maya. This can be set from the Navigation Preset drop-down.

To see the full list of shortcut keys in Chaos Vantage, go to Edit > Mouse and Key Shortcuts.

To understand the shortcuts below, you should assume the following abbreviations:

Shortcut depending on navigation preset:

Shortcuts which are not greyed out can be edited. New keys or combination of keystrokes with modifiers can be assigned by using LMB click on the shortcut or RMB click > Edit. Additional options for shortcuts are Delete, which removes the shortcut and Reset, which restores it to default value.
