Custom toggle shortcut


Recommended Posts

I would like to create a hotkey that will toggle between manual and auto update modes. I know how to add a hotkey for each of these states, but I would like to be able to press one key combination to switch from one mode to the other. Any ideas about how to implement this?

Hi eolophus,
this should work. You need to create a shelf tool, and assign a hotkey to it:

mode = hou.updateModeSetting().name()
if mode == 'AutoUpdate':
if mode == 'Manual':


I once made an image, how to create a shelf tool, and assign a hotkey, here:

I hope that it helps.
