Turtle Art Hotkeys

See Activities/Turtle_Art#Keyboard_shortcuts.

Terminal Hotkeys

The Terminal activity must pass all Ctrl keys to the shell, so all the Sugar hotkeys starting with Ctrl must also have Shift pressed:

  • Ctrl + Shift + c = copy to clipboard
  • Ctrl + Shift + v = paste from clipboard
  • Ctrl + Shift + q = quit activity

Emulator Hotkeys

  • Alt + Shift + q to quit Sugar

Emulator hotkeys work in sugar-build, sugar-emulator or if the environment variable SUGAR_DEVELOPER is defined. They do not function in sugar-runner.

Some of the Sugar hotkeys may not work in an emulator.

The undiscoverables

Keys that don't work but should

  • Esc doesn't appear to do anything at the activity level ... if Sugar is to help kids learn about computers then they should know that escape, outside of Sugar, does a lot of stop-gap good. Is there no 'Esc' on OLPC machines?
Try using the Ctrl + Esc combination. --Dennis Daniels 15:15, 9 August 2009 (UTC)
