Key combinations

The principle of TARGET key usage is found in topic conventions. Especially mouse keys and abbreviations are explained there.

Please note: Sometimes the position of the mouse is regarded for keyboard keys too. For example if you press key [m] for mirror, then the mirror axis is taken from the current mouse position! So just hover the mouse to the mirror axis. Do not click a mouse button! Then press the key [m]. So the keyboard key is seen like a mouse button too. If you disregard that, you can easily "shoot" the part to be mirrored out of the visible area. At first sight this can look as if you had deleted the part.
