maya assign hotkey to shelf button


#1

how can I assign a hotkey to a shelf button in maya or access the hotkey via a marking menu?


#2

Why not just copy and paste the shelf buttons command(s) to a new hotkey/marking menu item?


#3

if the shelf button executes custom code, then you need to open the Shelf Editor, and copy the code for the button.

then open the Hotkey Editor, make a new hotkey, and paste the code into it. Give it a new name, and then you can assign a hotkey to it.

if you are referring to one of the standard shelf buttons, then I would recommend using the search features of the hotkey editor to find a command that is the same or similar.

all right thanks for the tip.
Is there way to edit the context sensitive menus in maya (when you click shift + RMB)?


#5

You can but it requires overriding the Mel scripts that make them
