Blender Tip - Manage Hotkey Configuration Entries (and Remove Duplicates)

August 11, 2017

There are several ways to assign a hotkey to a particular piece of functionality in Blender. The most well-known is probably right-clicking on a menu item and selecting Add Shortcut, which works great most of the time. Once applied, shortcuts can be changed or removed in a similar manner via Change Shortcut and Remove Shortcut. However, it is possible to get into a situation where a key combination is applied that cannot be removed in this manner, and cannot be re-applied to another piece of functionality. The method below can be used to remove these duplicate assignments.

Managing the "internalBorder" background color in rxvt-unicode

While by no means an “essential” setting for many users, the internalBorder setting in rxvt-unicode can go a long way towards making the terminal more readable or simply looking more the way you want. It adds some padding between the edge of the terminal window and the start of the text, both at the top/bottom and the left/right of the window. This is especially useful if you use a tiling window manager and do not otherwise have spacing between windows.

The (arguably) venerable xterm terminal emulator has a similar property called BorderWidth.
