Tip: Press Windows key twice to switch focus to main Rhino window

The subject works in some cases when a panel currently has focus, e.g., while typing in Notes.

I don’t know whether Mac has something similar.

This is great - it works with the properties window when editing text, a dimension etc.

(Currently if editing a dimension, there is no way (that I’ve found) to get out of the edit with the keyboard - the ‘normal’ thing might be to press enter, but this just creates a new line, and esc or space don’t do it either)

But a couple of presses of the window key and we are in the command line!


Yeah, cool - that seems to work if the panel is docked - which is more usual I’d say - but not if floating as far as I can see.


Possibly related to https://mcneel.myjetbrains.com/youtrack/issue/RH-76379 , the F10 key seems to be readable by the main window regardless if a panel, floating or not, currently has the keyboard input. Setting F10 to a command such as ! _Echo in Options > Keyboard, that key can be used to switch focus to the main Rhino window / command prompt.
