The Creation Kit Keyboard Mapping is used when working in the Render Window.

Keyboard mapping for Navmesh editing can be found in the Navmesh Cheat Sheet.

Achtung.png Unlike previous toolkits, the Creation Kit does not allow user-defined hotkey mapping. The option to do so in the window no longer exists.
