Unity hotkeys

This page gives an overview of the default Unity keyboard shortcuts. You can also download a PDF of the table for Windows and MacOSX. Where a command has Ctrl/Cmd as part of the keystroke, this indicates that the Control key should be used on Windows and the Command key on MacOSX.

The Mac trackpad also has a number of shortcuts for navigating the Scene view. See Scene view navigation to learn more about these.
