Upon opening KD Max in 2D Mode, navigate to Files > Shortcut Settings.

Alternatively, shortcuts can also be set in 3D by going Settings > Shortcut Setting.


Now select the command you’ll like to set up a shortcut for.

Note that 3D shortcuts can also be set up in 3D by clicking the Group dropdown menu.


Once a command has been selected, click on the New Shortcut field and press the key sequence that you’ll like to set for the command. I have chosen Ctrl + W for View > Display Mode > Wireframe.

Now simply click Effect to apply this shortcut.

Now simply jump back into your design to test out your new shortcuts!
