Keyboard Shortcuts

Studio has several keyboard shortcuts allowing for a simple layout, video, and content changes. These can help you to quickly make changes to the on-stage program when needed.

Layout (Number 1-5)

Using the number keys (1-5), you can easily switch between Studio's 5 different auto layouts. Pressing 1 on the keyboard will select the first auto-layout from the left and so on. In order, these layouts are Side-by-side, Grid, Pinned Speaker, Pinned Screen share, and Pinned Content.

Speaker's video (Cmd + 1-9)

While in the Speaker source tab, cmd + 1-9 (ctrl + 1-9) allows you to take a speaker on stage (Speaker to the top-left is 1) as a solo speaker on stage in the program. Using this shortcut will also unmute the speaker automatically.

Note: Google Chrome uses this same shortcut for switching tabs. Though our shortcut will take priority, if you were to press Cmd + 4 and you only have 3 cameras to choose from, Google Chrome will switch to the 4th browser tab.

Content (Shift + Cmd + 1-9)

When the Content tab is selected shift + cmd + 1-9 (shift + ctrl + 1-9), it spotlights the content asset (Numbered the same way as speakers).


The spacebar allows you to easily progress to the next scene once you take the initial scene on stage.
