Standard key commands: Many common tasks, from switching modes and showing inspectors to working with tools, can be accomplished quickly by pressing one or more keys on your computer keyboard. For a list of default key commands, see the subtopics in the Key commands topic.

Custom key commands: You can create your own custom key commands for tasks you perform frequently, and use the Command Editor to substitute your custom key commands for the default set in MainStage. See View key commands in the Command Editor and Edit key commands.
