MODO Topology Pen Shortcuts

The pen tool in MODO is pretty powerful and come with a lot of of shortcuts as noted below:

  • Click = Move
  • Right-click = Move Edge Loop
  • Middle-click = Split
  • Shift+click = Duplicate
  • Shift+right-click = Duplicate Loop
  • Shift+middle-click = Add Loop
  • Ctrl+click = Slide Ctrl+middle-click = Remove

MODO Repeat Last Command Reset

I recently had occasion to reset the CTRL R key in MODO
which repeats the last command. It isn’t the easiest command to find and so I am making a note of it on here:

cmds.fireAgain uiCmds:false selectionCmds:false

Searching for last or repeat obviously wont help you find this esoteric beauty.

Modo Delete Edge Keep Vertex

If you want to remove an Edge and keep the vertex, you can use the UI button F2 Model Tab > Edge > Remove

You can also use right-click the edge and select remove.

It pops up a dialog box where you can check “Keep Vertices”

Assign it to ALT Backspace for example to make it easier to access
