Here are some preferences that you may wish to set initially. See the section Preferences for the complete list of available settings.


Enable Edit ‣ Preferences ‣ Interface ‣ Translation, and choose the Language and what to translate from Interface, Tooltips and New Data.

Veja :ref:`prefs-interface-tradução” para detalhes.


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.

Veja Preferências de entrada para detalhes.

Arquivos e caminhos

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

O Diretório temporário define onde armazenar arquivos como renders temporários e auto-saves.


O `//` no início de cada caminho no Blender significa o diretório do arquivo blend- aberto atualmente, utilizado para referenciar caminhos relativos.

Veja File Preferences para detalhes.

Salvar & Abrir

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.
