Customize your Keyboard. Total Eclipse comes with a very complete set of Speedkeys, Macros, and Hyperkeys for super-efficient editing. Feel free to create new shortcuts of your own. You’re not limited.
Total Eclipse is one of the least mouse-intensive programs around. Wherever possible, there are keyboard shortcuts -- whether it’s Hotkeys (underlined letters to select choices on menus) or Speedkeys (using combinations of Shift, Alt, Ctrl, and the F1-12 keys to totally by-pass menus).
Hyperkeys are an even more efficient set of keyboard commands. They do not use Ctrl or Alt, so you’ll probably find them easier to remember. You can perform most functions by pushing one key. Plus, you'll be able to cut down on wrist pain and fatigue by keeping your hands on the home keys.
