Using the Keyboard

Most commands in C.a.R. have keyboard shortcuts. Have a look into the menu to find the shortcut for each command. Shortcuts depend on the language.

Note, that you need to give your construction the keyboard focus if it looses the focus. Click on an empty spot with the right mouse button.

Useful shortcuts are the backspace key to delete the last action, the +/- key to zoom in and out, and the arrow keys to move the construction. Moreover, F1 will open the context sensitive help.

The important Esc key resets the current tool.

Note that the Ctrl-key and the Shift-key change the behavior of some tools.

The Space key is used by Java and Windows programs to press buttons. Some systems use the Return key instead.
