Some Menus, Some Shortcuts, Some Hotbox.

OR, usualy, I'll just draw a pentagram on the floor, sit in the middle of it, and light some candles, say some chants, and hope for the best LOL!

I use the hotbox ALL the time!! I use a lot of shortcuts too (default ones). I also sometimes use the shelves, but only really for creating objects.

My left hand lives on the keyboard very close to Alt, but where shift and space are just as easy to press. The next most used keys are Q, W, E, R, T and Y. My right hand lives on the mouse.
