How can I flip the Canvas horizontally, then return the Canvas to its original orientation using keyboard shortcuts?
In Painter IX (IX 9.1 and IX.5) and Painter X, we can
customize our keyboard shortcuts.
Windows - Edit > Preferences > Customize Keys
- Painter IX > Preferences > Customize Keys (In Painter X Mac,
I'm not sure if it's Painter X > Preferences > Customize Keys,
but you'll find it if you look)
When the Customize Keys Preferences dialog box opens, under Shortcuts,
choose Application Menus.
In Windows, I used the
following customized keyboard shortcuts:
- Click the + sign (plus sign) to
the left of Canvas, then click the + sign next to Rotate
Canvas to display the lists of menu commands.
- Highlight Flip Canvas
Horizontal and type your customized keyboard shortcut. Remember
to check below that panel to make sure you're not told that keyboard
short is already assigned to another command.
If it is, you'll see a message telling you it's already assigned. In
that case, try another keyboard shortcut until you find one that's
available to use.
- Click the OK button to
close the Preferences dialog box.
For Mac users, they should be:
- Flip Canvas Horizontal - Ctrl+Alt+H
- Flip Canvas Vertical - Ctrl+Alt+V
- Flip Canvas Horizontal - Command+Option+H
- Flip Canvas Vertical - Command +Option+V
