There is already a list of all the viewer features shortcut keys on the SL Wiki, but of course, the new shortcuts introduced by third party viewers are not listed there. So, here are the shortcuts specific to the Cool VL Viewer:

  • SHIFT ESC: resets the camera view (position) to the default (also exits mouse-look mode when active and closes any Appearance editing or Build floater).
  • SHIFT ENTER: emits the text in the chat input line as a whisper. (*)
  • CTRL ENTER: emits the text in the chat input line as a shout. (*)
  • CTRL SHIFT ENTER: inserts a line break in a chat or IM text input line or floater.
  • CTRL F in the notecard floater: pops up the search/replace box (like in the script floater).
  • CTRL SHIFT A: toggles the objects "Area Search" floater; the corresponding menu entry is in the "View" menu.
  • CTRL SHIFT C: pops up the "Region Debug Console" (AKA "Sim Console") floater; the corresponding menu entry is in "Advanced" -> "Consoles".
  • CTRL SHIFT G: toggles the grid selection combo on the login screen (also true for the official SL viewer) and the groups list/floater once logged in (Cool VL Viewer only).
  • CTRL SHIFT U: shortcut for the new "Advanced" -> "Rendering" -> "Reload Selected Texture" feature.
  • CTRL ALT A to toggle Attachments memory/surface area hover-text. This shortcut is available since v1.26.18.23.
  • CTRL ALT C to toggle avatar Complexity hover-text. This shortcut is available since v1.26.18.23.
  • CTRL ALT D (formerly used to toggle the Advanced menu, but the latter is now always visible) to toggle Deferred rendering (AKA "ALM"). This shortcut is available since v1.26.18.23.
  • CTRL ALT S: pops up the debug settings floater; the corresponding menu entry is in "Advanced". This shortcut is also available from the login screen since v1.25.0.27.
  • CTRL ALT SHIFT M: toggles the "Advanced" -> "Character" -> "Spoof Mouse-Look Mode" feature.
  • CTRL ALT SHIFT R: toggles the Radar floater; the corresponding menu entry is in the "World" menu.
  • CTRL ALT SHIFT S: sits your avatar "on the ground" (if not already sat); the corresponding menu entry is in the "World" menu.

Because of conflicts with CTRL ALT SHIFT Fn keys under Linux (which are used to switch to text consoles), some advanced settings shortcuts have been redefined when compared to the official viewers. They are:

  • CTRL SHIFT F1: Advanced --> Rendering --> Features --> UI
  • CTRL SHIFT F2: Advanced --> Rendering --> Features --> Selected
  • CTRL SHIFT F3: Advanced --> Rendering --> Features --> Highlighted
  • CTRL SHIFT F4: Advanced --> Rendering --> Features --> Dynamic Textures
  • CTRL SHIFT F6: Advanced --> Rendering --> Features --> Fog
  • CTRL SHIFT F8: Advanced --> Rendering --> Features --> Test FRInfo
  • CTRL SHIFT F9: Advanced --> Rendering --> Features --> Flexible Objects



(*) The Cool VL Viewer lets you the option of inverting these two shortcuts (i.e. SHIFT ENTER for SHouTs and CTRL ENTER for Whipsers, which is more logical and intuitive). See the corresponding setting in "Preferences" -> "Text Chat".
