Keyboard Combinations in Blender (Vol. I)

The version of 2.5 Blender caused us great impact with respect to interface change. Many of us were lost with its functionalities and we did not know where the operations we normally used were located.

It changed from this:

to this:

Obviously, the change was radical and above all, positive to attract more users. Although in theory a bit late (2 years), I provide a guide with the main keyboard combinations for Blender 2.5x and 2.6x.

Some operations are well known, others not so much. I even offer you those that barely came out now with version 2.66. Clarified that the symbol "|" that I use, as in programming, represents the logical OR operator.

I structured the combinations according to the following order: Basics, General, Movement, Navigation, Selection, Object Editing, Curve Editing, Work Modes, Animation y Rendering.

I recommend you for a better understanding and learning, open Blender and go testing them independently. Because there are several, I offer them in a series of packages that I will gradually post.
