So once again, some time has past in between learning sessions. This one was due to having to focus on creation of a RL escape room. I knew this interruption was coming, tried to limit it, and did not succeed. Not a big deal, but I'm ready to get back on track. So this post will be just me going over the past things I've learned to reinforce and reacquaint.
I must remember to continue with the format of: Stuff I learned, Stuff I Didn't Understand, and Shortcuts because that is making going back over these post much easier.
F - frames the selected object in the scene view (double clicking the object in the hierarchy window also works).
CTRL - D - Duplicates the object selected.
CTRL - SHIFT - N - Creates an empty object. This is very important for organization in the hierarchy view. Just remember to reset the transform and make sure they have a scale of 1.
CTRL - ALT - M then CTRL - H is the way to bring up Unity documentation (instead of ctrl-')
