  1. Hi, I already knew all these commands because I tried spamming every key on the keyboard (I wish I had looked for your article before doing it 🤣), do you know if it’s possibile to add more custom shortcuts to other parameters?

    Thank you in advance!

    1. Hi Dario,
      You can add custom shortcuts in:
      Editor Preferences > Keyboard Shortcuts > Material editor
      But as far as I see there is no option to add custom shortcuts to node creation commands..

  2. Oded awesome job… some more that might help

    Shift + C + LMB gets you component mask
    P + LMB gets a panner
    D + LMB gets a divide

    Cool trick is align nodes by shift + W/A/S/D
    W aligns to the top
    A aligns to the left
    S aligns to the bottom
    D aligns to the right

  3. A few more to your list:
    (A) Add
    (E) Power
    (O) 1-x
    (N) Normalize
    (B) BumpOffset
    (R) Reflection Vector
    (I) IF
