If you have a compact keyboard without a separate number pad, enable Preferences ‣ Input ‣ Keyboard ‣ Emulate Numpad. This gives you the 3D view shortcuts regularly used on the number pad.

If you do not have a middle mouse button, you can enable Preferences ‣ Input ‣ Mouse ‣ Emulate 3 Button Mouse. This allows you to hold the Alt or OSKey key while dragging with the mouse, to orbit.

Details finden Sie unter Eingabe.

Dateien und Pfade#

At Preferences ‣ File Paths you can set options such as what Image Editor (GIMP, Krita…) and Animation Player to use.

Das Temporary Directory-Verzeichnis bestimmt, wo Dateien wie temporäre Render-Ergebnisse und automatische Sicherungen aufbewahrt werden.


Das // am Anfang eines Pfades in Blender bezeichnet das Verzeichnis der gerade geöffneten .blend-Datei; es wird benutzt, um relative Pfade anzugeben.

Details finden sich unter Datei-Einstellungen.

Speichern und Laden#

If you trust the source of your blend-files, you can enable Auto Run Python Scripts. This option is meant to protect you from malicious Python scripts in blend-files that you got from someone else. Many users turn this option on, as advanced rigs tend to use scripts of some sort.

See Save & Load Auto Run Python Scripts Preference.
