Change 3D Explore keys


Many of us have a workflow where we bring our model into Twinmotion or Lumion, very often linking the models as we work.

Going back and forth, it becomes something of a hassle to switch between navigation keys, and (in my version of Archicad, the NOR version), I have to use the somewhat illogical [c] for down and [space] for up. Most other 3D software with keyboard and mouse navigation use [q] for up and [e] for down, which in all honesty makes a lot more sense.

Can we get the feature of choosing to change these keys? Or set [q] and [e] as standard?

I think it's always good to get extra customisation. [q] and [e] are pretty standard nowadays.


I personally like as it is though, these are rooted in FPS controls:
[c] is supposed to be for crouch
[space] is supposed to be jump


The benefit here is that you can press both easily while holding [shift] to sprint and moving with [w] [a] [s] [d]. 

The most annoying thing to me is changing your move speed, which is done with [+] and [-]. These buttons are very far from everything else. I have to take my hand off the mouse to change it. In something like Unreal Engine, you can adjust the speed simply by using the scroll wheel.
