Hotkeys are key combinations and/or buttons assigned to marking menus or individual tools. Once you get to know them, you’ll notice an increase in your speed as you sketch.

There are hotkeys for marking menus and tools. If you don't like the defaults, change them. If you want to map a hotkey shortcut to a tool, you can do that, as well.
Marking menu Hotkeys
The lagoon marking menus have the hotkeys 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, and 6 assigned to them. Even if you have customized your lagoon, these won’t change. These hotkeys can be particularly useful when set up as express keys on your tablet or stylus buttons.
