DB has many SHORTCUT KEYS (also called Hot Keys) to make editing actions faster. The entire
list is provided in Appendix A: Doom Builder Shortcut Keys at the end of this manual.

Figure 1.5.

SHORTCUT KEYS are listed here
and can be modified to suit
your tastes.

DB uses many of the standard Windows hot keys. Here are some of the SHORTCUT KEYS you'll
probably use most often in 2D EDIT MODE:

You may want to change the movement keys in 3D EDIT MODE, in particular. You can set the
keys to move you through the map with the same configuration you use in DOOM. The arrow
keys
are reserved for aligning textures, so you should not change these. The mouse buttons
are best used for selecting, copying, and pasting textures, so I'd leave those settings as they
are, as well. You can use the mouse to move around, look up and down (mouse movement is
the same as MOUSELOOK in QUAKE and zDOOM or JDOOM), but you'll probably want to set a key
to move forward, since MOUSE1 will not be available for this. I personally use the following
configuration:

/

Move Forward

<

Strafe Left

>

Strafe Right

M

Move Backward

I also use the NUM – and NUM + for Zoom In and Zoom Out, which used to be the Doom
Builder default. If you're used to this instead of the new mouse wheel default, it's easy enough
to change.

To change a shortcut key, click on the function you want to change in the list box, then in the
NEW KEY COMBINATION text box merely press the new shortcut key you want to use. You don't
have to type "Mouse1" – just click the left mouse button. Likewise, press the + key on the
Numeric Keypad – don't type "NUM +".
