Done an article on Construct keyboard shortcuts. See it here:

Keyboard Shortcuts

(That's not https this time ;))

Even I didn't know a few of these, so check them out! One or two (involving the Enter key) are implemented in the next build, so they won't immediately work in 0.98.3.

Hey that's handy, I'd forgotten I added some of these.

Looks from that like the Picture Editor in particular needs many more shortcuts, David 8).

Nice! I wasn't aware of a few of these.

Might I suggest the following for the Picture Editor:

F - Freestyle select
R - Cycle through Shape select (Rectangle, Polygon, Ellipse)
W - Toggle between Wand and Color select
B - Toggle between Brush and Pencil
E - Eraser
G - Toggle between Flood Fill (G is the same in Photoshop :P) and Color Replacer
L - Line
S - Cycle through Shape tools (Rectangle, Polygon, Ellipse)
H - Hotspot
I - Image Point

[ and ] - Scale brush size down/up (same as Photoshop)
Arrows - Nudge hotspot/Image point when those tools are selected
- and + - Cycle through animation frames
Ctrl M, Ctrl F - Mirror and Flip
Ctrl R - Rotate by 90 degrees clockwise (for other degrees use menu)
Number Row (not numpad) - Set hardness to number*10 (for instance, 1 would set hardness to 10, 5 would set hardness to 50, 0 would set hardness to 100, etc.)

Uh... I can't think of any more right now :P

Also, one thing that's bugged me is the numpad shortcut for setting the hotspot moves the hotspot even when the hotspot tool isn't selected. I think that should be addressed. It should only move the hotspot when you have the hotspot tool selected so you can see where it's moving to.

You missed the most important one deadeye: Holding Alt to get the Colour picker when using anything where the colour is important (that means we don't have to change the hotspot-for-all-frames-tool.)

What is the best way to clean my keyboard? I changed my keyboard back to an old keyboard from a 2000 Gateway computer I had. The problem is the keyboard is very dirty and the buttons don't come off. I cleaned the surface with windex but the inside is very dirty. What is the best way to clean the inside of the keyboard?

No evidence of any spam or advertising, I think it's just someone who wants to clean their keyboard,

@Ashley, I know this is an old thread but I agree with @deadeye -- it would it great to get more keyboard shortcuts for the image editing within Construct 2. It would really help a lot and I could actually do pixel art within Construct 2 instead of importing everything.

Edit: oops, I didn't realize this was for Construct Classic, I'm actually recommending this for Construct 2
