Ctrl-Tab not working to switch to Nodes Bin
on Jan 28, 2013 at 9:09:44 pm

For some reason on the Mac I'm on, the keyboard shortcut Ctrl-Tab doesn't work to toggle the FX Ribbon, the Nodes bin when in CFX, or the CFX schematic when hovered over the viewer.

I tried going in and making sure all the mac keyboard shortcuts were at their default.

I double checked in the Smoke Keyboard Shortcuts that Ctrl-Tab was indeed mapped, and it is. I tried to remap it to the same thing, but for some reason it won't take Ctrl-Tab as a key command. It will accept either Ctrl, or Tab, but not them together. Not sure why.

Ctrl-Tab is definitely working on the keyboard, as I can navigate Chrome and other apps using that command. Seems that Smoke isn't liking it.

Any ideas?

Thanks!

Check the Keyboard Selected in the Keyboard Shortcut screen and make sure it is set to US English.

Also, it's SHIFT+TAB to activate the FX Ribbon on the timline under Classic hotkeys. And CTL+ESC to see the CFX schemativ from teh viewer.

But it is SHIFT+TAB to open the FX Node Bin.

Yeah, it's set to Mac US English--

Actually, on Smoke 2013 using the Smoke 2013 (FCP) keyboard set, switching to the FX Nodes and such is with Ctrl-Tab. I use it all the time on another machine I use, but for some reason on this particular machine that I'm on now it doesn't want to work....

I think there is something up with the Ctrl functionality on this machine, because I also just noticed that I can't use Ctrl to select a clone source within the paint node. I can't find a way to select a source to clone from.

Anyone have any ideas of anywhere else to look to see what's up with it?

Thanks!

Hi,

If you wish to clone a source, try using CONTROL+SHIFT instead of just CONTROL.

I know this was changed.
