Sculpt mode Symmetry/Lock hotkeys

How can I setup a hotkey toggle for the x,y,z mirror axis (separately) in the “Symmetry/Lock” menu for sculpt mode?

I tried creating my own mapping but managed to crash Blender doing this. Also found an old blender wiki page showing the above mapping to the “x”, “y”, and “z” keys, but that doesn’t seem to be the case in 2.78.

Any help/advice is greatly appreciated!

Thanks in advance.


(Blender 2.78)

You can assign hotkeys.

Under the 3D View->Sculpt section, add a new hotkey…

Set its primary value(default is “none”) to…


That will add a new value called Context Attribute. Set it to…

Repeat that for the Y and Z values if you need them.

Thank you! Worked like a charm :slight_smile:
