Sense Navigation BT Hot-Key Quick Reference Guide

This file lists all available hot keys and quick keys in Sense Navigation (SenseNav). Please note: Most functions of SenseNav can be accessed from its program menu which is opened with F2. For best flexibility most of the hot keys have one or two alternatives, however they are not listed here. Because some hot keys fall into multiple categories, they may be listed more than once.
