Please let us know other shortcuts you'd like to see in Playmaker!

some to switch between the State, Events and Variables tabs might be nice.

Also, right now the variable creation feels a bit clunky.
Would it be possible to for example press Alt+o to create an object variable? There could be a small popup for the name of the variable and then you'd be done.
That way you could really speed up some work. I mean, you could perhaps realise that you're missing a float to store stuff in a float operator, and then you could just press Alt+f , enter a name and put it right where it's needed.

can't think of anything else off the spot now. I really like the shortcuts as they are, especially the crt click ones :)
Best,
Sven

Ctrl+X is in the next update :)

Also Ctrl+F will focus the search field in any dialog.
And Ctrl+A will select all text in a search field.

It is kind of an older post but I would love to add F2 for renaming Actions and States since it is Windows Standard behaviour.

Currently:
Tab Key = Rename State (after selecting it)

Seems this broke in 4.3 after all the focus stuff got changed. Think this will ever get fixed? F2 would also be a good alternative.

Seems that navigating playmaker got a bit clunky after that update.  :-\

A shortcut to move selected states around would be super helpful right now!  Maybe Shift+ arrow keys?

I'd like some shortcuts for the debugger (play, pause and next event/frame).  When you have FSM's that are populating arrays at the beginning, it's frustrating having to click the next button each loop, especially when each time you click the mouse pointer moves to the other side of the screen!!
