Sugar Hotkeys

(These may or may not work, for example many of these DON'T work if you are running Sugar in emulation mode in Fedora 11.)

Is there another way to make a screengrab? An activity?

in emulation mode

  • Alt + Shift + F makes the frame appear and disappear
  • Ctrl + q quits an activity
  • Alt + Shift + Q quits Sugar
  • Alt + Shift + O opens the search
  • Alt + Shift + R rotates the screen

Terminal hotkeys

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

Keys that should work

Some combination of hotkeys should always work to close an application. Somtimes

  • Ctrl + q works

but not always.

Activities

Turtle Art Hotkeys

  • Alt + p = palette;
  • Alt + b = blocks;
  • Alt + r = run;
  • Alt + w = walk;
  • Alt + s = stop;
  • Alt + e = erase the screen.

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)
