  • Here you will find the basic info on how to use SpaceSys, its basic controls, and hotkeys.
    This will be changed and updated as we implement new functions so check back after updates to see what’s new.

    First, if you have not found the SpaceSys config app, you can find it in your installation folder under /Bin directory.
    With it you can change the basic settings inside the application, like graphics detail, environment settings and audio settings.

    Also you can configure your key settings there, everything is configurable so if you prefer your own keys you can change them also.
    Mouse settings are to be implemented in the near future, for now you cant invert it or change the sensitivity.

    Using SpaceSys itself is not hard, if you played any first person games (FPS) or RTS you will feel like at home inside.
    To fly fast to a space you can just double click with left mouse button and you are there, also you can use double tap W key, and to go back into previous space just double tap S. Also on keys A & D you can jump between spaces or interest points (doubleclick)

    The movement keys are:

    W: forward
    S: back
    D: right
    A: left
    SPACE: up
    L_Shift: down
    Mouse Scroll button : look

    Also to navigate up, down, or to strafe left or right you can just come with the mouse to the edge of the screen.

    CTRL+MMB (middle mouse button): move player in vertical plane (left / right / up / down)
    CTRL+ALT+MMB: move player in horizontal plane: (fwd / back / left / right)

    Those are the basic controls

    Now for function keys that you can use and people are accustomed to:


    ESC: cancel action
    TAB: select next item

    F2: rename
    F5: Refresh
    F6: Kinect on
    F7: Kinect off
    F8 : free view (disabled)
    F9: centered view (disabled)

    CTRL-C: copy
    CTRL-V: paste
    CTRL-X: cut
    CTRL-A: select all

    ENTER: (execute)
    BACKSPC: go back in space
    DELETE : delete if you have something selected; also browse back while browsing trough a folder.

    MENU KEY : context menu

    CTRL-Q : quits SpaceSys
    CTRL-ALT-Q : quits SpaceSys and resets worlds state. (deletes all icons and spaces, returns to normal)

    CTRL-ALT-I: rotates through different info levels


    Space / WIndows / Icons / Menus related controls:


    CONTEXT MENU (MENU key or RMB) anywhere in global space: show menu to create new space or interest point.

    PAUSE key: Toggle Live Windows on / off if Live Windows feature enabled


    LMB click on gizmo (small ball at the bottom of every space) / icon / window / menu pin and drag: move space / icon / window / menu in horizontal plane
    MMB Click on any selectable item makes the camera focus to that item, you can scroll to zoom, or use WASD / UP / DOWN keys to rotate around focus, or edge scroll around focus.
    CTRL + LMB click on gizmo/ window / menu pin and drag: move space / window / menu in vertical plane
    RMB click on gizmo / icon / window / menu pin and drag: rotate space / icon / window / menu
    Mouse button 4 click on gizmo/ window / menu pin and drag: move items in vertical plane

    TAB / double [RIGHT] key (default: D): Move forward through open spaces / windows if space / window is active

    5th MB Double click: Move forward through open spaces / windows if space / window is active
    4th MB Double click: Move backward through open spaces / windows if space / window is active

    LMB double click / 5th MB click on space / window / menu under cursor: Fly to item
    Press double [FORWARD] key (default: W) on space / window / menu under cursor: Fly to item

    Press double [BACK] key (default: S): Fly to previous item
    4th MB click: Fly to previous item
    Ctrl + 4th MB click when space is active: navigate back to previous folder

    LMB Double click on icon: Start default action (open / start app)
    LMB Double click on folder icon in global space: Browse folder in new space
    LMB Double click / 5th MB click on folder icon in space: Navigate to folder in space

    Enabling Live Windows Feature Tutorial

    Kinect users can use hand control for the application, the controls behave as you normally would expect, with the addition that you can choose, start, or fly towards space or interest points by moving right hand forward. With the left hand you control the world movement, and with the right hand you control the mouse or look.
    Voice controls will be implemented soon we hope, but only if there are enough interested users.

    That is it for now, check back later for updates, and if you have your own ideas on how to improve on SpaceSys interface please post here.
