Keyboard Shortcuts

Shortcuts or Hotkeys are keyboard combinations that produce the same effect as pressing a ZBrush interface item. They can speed up your workflow by allowing you to focus on your sculpting or painting, rather than constantly searching for an interface button.

ZBrush comes with many default hotkeys and mouse actions. Also Custom Hotkeys can be assigned by the user for actions that they use often.


Wherever the Ctrl key is mentioned in this documentation, MacOSX users may want to use the Cmd (Apple) key instead, though note for keyboards with both a Ctrl and Cmd key either can be used. The Alt key on Macintosh keyboards is sometimes called the Option key, and the Windows Enter key is called the Return key.
