Doom builder 2 hotkeys/keyboard shortcuts?

Question

What are the most useful hotkeys/keyboard shortcuts for Doom builder 2?

 

So far the most useful one I know about is ctrl-c when aiming at a texture and then pressing middle mouse on another texture to copy that taste unto the surface. But I was wondering if there are also hotkeys that allow you to copy texture alignment and sector height. Are there? And what are the most useful keyboard shortcuts/hotkeys in Doom builder 2 in general?

Backspace in draw mode goes back a vertex if you fuck up- and holding space and dragging lets you scroll freely too! :D

V=Vertex mode, S=sector mode, L=linedef mode, T=things mode, and of course, Q=Visual mode. Also, Ctrl+mouse scroll up or down to change brightness...

The ones I use the most (after Ctrl+S, of course) are:

 

In classic mode:

-Flip linedef (F)

-Join sectors (J)

-Merge sectors (shift+J)

-Edit selection mode (E)

 

In visual mode:

-Horizontal auto-align (?)

-Vertical auto-align (?)

-Gravity on/off (G)

-Full brightness on/off (B)

-Things on/off (T)

 

I wrote "?" where I don't remember what the default key bindings were, since I changed them long ago.

The defaults are A for horizontal align and Shift-A for vertical align.

Thanks! I wish I knew about that before. There have been so many time that I have had to restart drawing a sector.

. Shift and mouse3 flood fills everything that's the same.

 

Holding ctrl while selecting a sector will select everything of the same height. Holding shift will select all of the same texture.

 

Ctrl + C = Copy

Ctrl + Shift + C = Copy w/ properties. 

Ctrl + V = Paste

Ctrl + X = Cut

Ctrl + Z = Undo

Ctrl + Y = Redo

 

Pressing E over a sector will detach it from the grid. Holding shift while rotating unsnaps.

 

Ctrl + D goes to draw mode.

Ctrl + Shift + D = draw rectangle.

 

Home or End centers your map.

 

G for gravity.

H for highlight.

 

Shift + D creates door.

 

Ctrl + 0 - 9 = Assigns group.

Ctrl + Shift + 0 - 9 = Clear group.

 

Ctrl + F9 tests from where the mouse is pointing.

 

Ctrl + Shift + Mousewheel = Rotation

 

Try holding shift and ctrl while doing that stuff.

Not in Doombuilder2, in GZDoom Builder and GZDoom Builder - Bugfix yes.
