8.4. Shortcuts

darktable has a large set of keyboard shortcuts that is user configurable through the preference dialog.

When you open the shortcuts menu you are presented with a hierarchical list of all actions that can receive a keyboard shortcut. Go to the action you want to change and double click. You are then prompted to press the new key combination to be mapped to the selected action. In order to remove an existing keyboard shortcut, click on the action and press backspace.

You can export your mappings to a file or import mappings from a file. Press default to reset all keyaccelerators to their default state.

Below is a table with the default keybindings for actions available in darktable.
