Custom Keyboard Shortcuts

cineSync 5 comes with a variation of default keyboard shortcuts, but it also enables you to create your own custom keyboard shortcuts.

To set your customized hotkey(s), open the ‘Preferences' menu and navigate to the ‘Shortcuts’ window.

Choose the shortcut you wish to customize and type in the new value.

The new hotkey gets set immediately, and if there is a conflict, you will be notified with an error message asking you to confirm or decline the setting.

Tip: You can always reset the settings back to the default by clicking the ‘Reset’ button that is located in the lower-right corner of the ‘Shortcuts’ window.

Please note: Some default keys cannot be used as a shortcut and you will be notified about it with an error message.
