Shotgun Quick Tips: Type Where You Want to Go

Aug 7, 2013



Welcome back - I hope you all had a fun and successful time at SIGGRAPH.  (I know that we had a blast partying with you!) This week's Quick Tip is a short one, but it can make navigating Shotgun much easier. Did you know that you can jump to the menu item you want just by typing it?

Let's say I want to create a new page for a weekly report. Using the keyboard shortcut I mentioned previously, I can press "N" to activate the New Menu, and then begin typing "page". You'll notice that your selection will jump down and highlight Page - now just hit Enter to select it.

This works all throughout Shotgun - from the Apps menu to the toolbar buttons such as Sort, Group, Fields, More, and Pipeline. If there's a nested menu, you can use your arrow keys to pop that menu open and your focus will be in the new menu. Just type what you need and press enter.

Alright- that's about it for this week- back to work!

See you in two weeks...
