hot keys...short keys...my saviors
i didnt see any threads with this soooo, since it helps me so much i figured id post some of my most used hot keys, they are overlooked a lot when using GIMP even though they are next to the text in the menus. for those of you who dont know what hot keys are they are an assortment of keys you can use instead of going to the menus and finding it, which for me since i tend to screw up a bit, shortens the length of time im wandering through gimp and i can get down to it, if anyone else has some that they would like to share...if they think its even worth a post let alone an entire thread...please do so. so here they are.

[ = shrink the brush you are using
] = enlarge the brush you are using
ctrl z = undo
ctrl y = redo an undo
holding shift while painting drags a line
holding ctrl while doing the above makes a straight line.
shift+ctrl+a = select none
ctrl+c = copy
ctrl+v= paste

well there are the ones i use every time i use gimp, i hope they are found useful to some of you.

Ctrl key is "constrained angles" (by sectors of 15°: 0, 15, 30, 45, 60, 75, 90...)

Also, use guides, and use guides Smile

There is also another version of a pdf file with many (all?) the hotkeys in Gimp. This one was done by our own member, MiketheDJ4 and can be found in his thread here.

Mike's post that I mentioned is from about 7 months ago, so I don't think he'll mind too much. Big Grin
And the pdf file is still available on his site, which his post gives the link to.

Once Gimp 2.8 is released I'll be working on "The Gimp 2.8 Cheat Sheet" however I'll wait till it's released, cause there's a lot of changes, and well I'm looking forward to them Big Grin.

BTW: It's all good. The original cheat sheet took a couple days, and has almost every single hotkey listed on it. Then next one is gonna take a lot longer to make. If anyone wants to collaborate on it, just hit me up via pm.

Another way to get the list is Edit/Preferences->Interface/Keyboard shortcuts/Configure keyboard shortcuts...
