Quick Reference


Keyboard commands work only when the "focus" is on the appropriate area. Focus is shown by a yellow box around an area of the window. You can shift the focus by pressing tab or shift-tab or by clicking on one of the interface areas. More explanation of the interface areas can be found in the Interface section of Help.


You can customize the 3D View Area key commands by selecting the options "Game > Confgiuration" from the in-game menu.
