I wanted to change the keyboard shortcuts in the QGIS 3 layout view / print composer, but I cannot find any buttons from this section, for example: "New layout - Ctrl + N".

How to change it?

  • Ctrl + N is assigned to New for New Project, you cannot assign the same shortcut key to an existing one. You need to create another shortcut for the New before using Ctrl + N for new layout. – ahmadhanb Oct 2 '20 at 5:46
  • @ahmadhanb What about other keys / buttons? I can't even find them in the key list. – Comrade Che Oct 2 '20 at 6:42

If you like, you can create a new layout using N instead of Ctrl + N as it is reserved for creating New QGIS project. To do that:

  • Go to Settings -> Keyboard shortcuts

enter image description here

  • Search for New print layout
  • Click on Change button
  • Press letter n on your keyboard and it will be changed to N
  • Then close the window.

Go to Project -> New print layout, and you will find the shortcut will become N

Press letter n (small letter), and the New print layout will pop-up:

To see all the shortcuts, expand the Keyboard shortcuts, and you will se all the assigned shortcuts:

  • Thanks for your reply. Yes, I can change the keyboard shortcuts for the New Print Layout action. But the problem is that I don't see any actions available in layout view (layout view / print composer) in the list of available keyboard shortcuts. Can you find any of these actions in this list: Preview Atlas (shortcut Ctrl + Alt + \ ) or Export Atlas as Images or Layout Properties? – Comrade Che Oct 2 '20 at 9:15
  • The commands in your screenshots do not belong to layout mode (layout view / print composer). – Comrade Che Oct 2 '20 at 9:19
