shortcuts - hotkeys
I think you should be able to assign any hotkeys you like to any function via the customize tab and then customize user interface, the keyboard. simply highlight the option or function and then highlight the hotkey box and assign whatevery key combination you like.

Hope that helps :)

Yup that helped but these two still missing

# increasing/decreasing meshsmooth/turbosmooth levels

# shortcut for 'shortcut override toggle'

more help appreciated

shortcut keys
you would need to assign a keyboard shortcut to the 'override toggle' as by default one isn't assigned. So that's that point covered.

For the second point they is a nice little script that I use goto 'Scriptspot' and search for meshsmooth controls. Or write your own little script to assign keys.

But the meshsmooth controls script works just fine, I have - and + on my numberpad assigned to meshsmooth.

Hope that helps.

Hmmm thats very good. but i found another way of doing it. Thats by assigning shorcut to 'show end product'. Your help indeed showed hell lot of other helpful scripts. Thanx mate :-)
