Tom's Toontorials: Hotkeys and Shortcuts

Posted by Tutorial Tom on December 10, 2016 at 3:00 PM

Hi there! It's your old pal, Toontorial Tom. My oh my, have some of you come a long way since I last saw you. I'm still in the Tutorial business, you see, and I've got another fantastic Toontorial here for you. Today's topic is on Keyboard Hotkeys and Shortcuts that can help you navigate Toontown like a professional.



You may know how to move and jump, but you can do a whole lot more if you know the right buttons to push. I've organized TOON TIPS into different categories to help you become the most knowledgeable Toon around!

For the Photographers:

  • F9 will take a screenshot! You can access them in your Shtickerbook.
  • F3 will hide all GUI on the screen, which is useful if you want to take a screenshot for a background or avatar without the clutter.
  • Tab will change your camera angle, and Shift + Tab will change the camera angle in the opposite direction.
  • Page Up or Page Down will let you look above or below.

For the Bug Reporting Experts:

  • F10 will take a screenshot with some location and debug information attached. This is helpful for reporting bugs to support.
  • Shift + F1 will also display some location and debug information, also useful for reporting bugs to support.
  • F2 will display information inside of Cog Facilities for bug reports. It's also useful for checking the current floor number! (Add "1" to the number displayed.)

For the Toons on the Move:

  • Home will display your current gags without having to open up your Shtickerbook!
  • End will display your current ToonTasks.
  • Alt will open up the Street Map if used on a street.

For the New Toons in Town:

  • Control is the button to jump! Don't get stuck in a fountain.
  • F8 will open your Shtickerbook.
  • Escape will open your Shtickerbook to the "Options" page.

For the Mac Players:

  • On OSX or macOS, some hotkeys require pressing FN before the key to make it work. If one of the above keys isn't working, try pressing FN first! And if you can't find the key, check out the other Mac-only shortcuts below.
  • FN + Up Arrow or FN + Down Arrow will let you look above or below.
  • FN + Left Arrow will display your current gags without having to open up your Shtickerbook!
  • FN + Right Arrow will display your current ToonTasks.

I hope that these TOON TIPS are useful for you -- and soon, they'll be displayed in Toontown! I've been working on writing TIPS to add back to loading screens with even more than ever in the not-too-distant future, so keep your eyes peeled.

We'd also love to be able to set your own Hotkeys in the Shtickerbook! What kind of other features would you like to see as Toontown polishes up things around town?

I hope you've enjoyed this Toontorial! Say, we've also cleaned a lot of things up over on Toontorial Terrace. If you know any new Toons in town, tell them to stop by. Enjoy this update!

December 10, 2016 [ttr-beta-v1.13.3]

Tweaks:
• Minor changes to various cutscenes in the Toontorial for better player experience.
• HQ Harry has an improved cutscene in the Toontorial.
• Transparency for the ToonFest glasses has slightly changed.

Bugfixes:
• Various typo fixes and dialogue improvements throughout the game.
• Fix an exploit which allowed players to create a loud sound by spamming animations or SpeedChat phrases.
• Fix a bug that prevented players from clicking Tutorial Tom's speech bubbles in the Toontorial.
• Eliminate visual stuttering for the Toontorial Flunky.
• The Toontorial Battle no longer clips with the edge of the sidewalk.
• A number of Toontorial ToonTasks now properly zoom in to the NPC.
• Fixed lack of widescreen support for the "Make a Friend" ToonTask GUI.
• Street props will now always display in Toontown Central. A previous bug made them only appear after visiting a street.
• Fix a bug causing both Toon HQ doors to display arrows in the margins
• The final battle of the CEO now plays the correct music.
• Fix a bug which caused nametags to be unclickable during the final battle of the CEO.
• Fix a bug which caused the VP to stop moving after being ran into while stunned.

Thanks a million! Best update ever! Can't wait to try the CEO out. :D

Giggles Razzleberry said on December 10, 2016 at 3:17 PM
I made a new toon in toontorial I like how the toon spins to Toon HQ when he has to go in it, or is that a bug?

Natty said on December 10, 2016 at 3:17 PM
Those keys are very nice to know. Thanks!

Neil the Brave said on December 10, 2016 at 3:18 PM
Awesome nd thank you ...

Felix said on December 10, 2016 at 3:22 PM
Nice :)

Celeste said on December 10, 2016 at 3:23 PM
Wow, I'm glad so many things are fixed now! A hotkey suggestion I have would be one that disables seeing pies/evidence other Toons are throwing during the VP/CJ to create less client-side lag.

Lady Rainbow said on December 10, 2016 at 3:34 PM
Thanks! I always seem to forget the hotkeys.

Skylla said on December 10, 2016 at 3:36 PM
When you already knew almost all of these.... lol :D

Megasnoop said on December 10, 2016 at 3:40 PM
Awesome long awaited Bug Fixes! Nice to see some love still coming into the game and that it's always being worked on. :)

Biscuit Fizzlefoot said on December 10, 2016 at 3:41 PM
Hey, hey! Thanks for the helpful tips! I'll be sure to use them!

Prince Quiet said on December 10, 2016 at 3:43 PM
Thank you for finally taking care of the music in the CEO!

Captain Black Jack said on December 10, 2016 at 3:48 PM
Thank you so much for fixing the VP bug. Greeners definitely like to exploit that one.

Mousy said on December 10, 2016 at 3:52 PM
Yes! I have been waiting for the VP Fix and the CEO music fix! Thanks TTR Team!

flipper said on December 10, 2016 at 4:00 PM
that last bug fix makes me smile

Sneezy HoneyFlap said on December 10, 2016 at 4:00 PM
They finally fixed the V.P. stun glitch! I hate people who do that, and I got greened once from it. Thanks, TTR!

Frogzilla said on December 10, 2016 at 4:00 PM
Wow i do love the bug fixes, they make me happy! =D #1st

Cat Magnet said on December 10, 2016 at 4:48 PM
No more Trolls in VP!!! :D

Melody said on December 10, 2016 at 5:00 PM
Good to hear from you,Tom! It feels like yesterday I was just learning the ropes, and now I'm spinning cog gears in the HQ'S daily! This is a good refresher, for both new toons and returning toons!

Little Ball Of Fur said on December 10, 2016 at 5:03 PM
Thanks for the tips, Tom!

Papa Luigi said on December 10, 2016 at 5:04 PM
Thanks ttr staff! :D

Sheriff Teague said on December 10, 2016 at 5:21 PM
Thank you guys so much for all you work!

Nutmeg said on December 10, 2016 at 5:21 PM
I'd love it if the command for throwing pies in the VP was changed on Mac. Instead of FN + Delete, maybe only only one key?

Dr. Taffy Pinkerpop said on December 10, 2016 at 5:32 PM
I'd love it if in the options menu, the volumes for music and sound effects could be adjusted with a slider instead of an on-and-off button. My headphones make me hear things too strongly in the game so I have to turn off the music so I don't get a headache. Having a slider from 0-100 or something would be great!

Violet said on December 10, 2016 at 5:40 PM
I already knew most of these, but thanks for the tips!! :D

Miss Fluffy said on December 10, 2016 at 6:12 PM
Well, at least I know the name of the street now... But sometimes I just wish I could swing by on Toontorial Terrace to say hi to Harry and Tom.

Twinkleberry (130 Laff) said on December 10, 2016 at 6:33 PM
I've been around for a little over a year now, and might I add a huge THANK YOU to Toontorial Tom for adding these to the blog! Mac Tip for Card Matching Game on Trolley: Be sure to click the Fn + Delete to flip the cards over! Trust me, it helps. It's slower than the Window users, but at least you can still somewhat play. I also thought that the Fn + F3 was a bug at first, and I freaked out with not knowing how to bring back my gags in the Back 9. Now I know. Thanks so much!!! Have fun new Toons!

Loopy Lucky Lemoncrunch said on December 10, 2016 at 6:53 PM
Thanks for the information! Now I can have more time to rid the streets from Cogs!

Precious Daffy said on December 10, 2016 at 7:00 PM
You guys are doing a great job in my opinion. But as far as tweaks go, I would love to have a function key to take a quick look at SOS cards.

Master Loopy Bananamuffin said on December 10, 2016 at 7:06 PM
It's about time the Toontorial got some decent fixes. Now, about Tutorial Tom's missing legs...

Ooowoo said on December 10, 2016 at 7:50 PM
Good to see these improvements and bugfixes. The CEO music bug was driving me crazy.

Flappy Biggenpow said on December 10, 2016 at 8:12 PM
I actually never knew about the Shift + Tab thing. I knew the other one. You learn something new every day.

Fuego said on December 10, 2016 at 8:19 PM
I've already got stuck in the fountain.. :')

Sassy one said on December 10, 2016 at 8:22 PM
Thank you!

Syre said on December 10, 2016 at 9:49 PM
There's a bad bug when moving furniture in the house.

Good ol Chester honeymarble said on December 10, 2016 at 10:27 PM
Meow! Thanks for the hotkeys, I haven't even fought the CEO yet so I don't know about the inncorrect music :D

Toon said on December 10, 2016 at 11:39 PM
Nice! Now, if we could have the CEO's golfing issues with multiple Toons unable to slow the CEO and such, we'd all be happy Toons! Glad the major bug fixes are the team's new goals now. I'd rather have bugs fixed rather than waiting so long.

Epic Mouse said on December 10, 2016 at 11:58 PM
Loving all these bug fixes, so happy that we can't get greened in the VP pie round anymore!

Delilah said on December 11, 2016 at 12:37 AM
Thanks Tom...

Sir Trickalot said on December 11, 2016 at 1:52 AM
I like this update a lot! But the running into vp stun, wouldn't it make the cfo wrong again? Anyways have have a toontastic Christmas (in 4 days!! Ooooo)

Lady Lemonquack said on December 11, 2016 at 3:12 AM
How about laptop users where the F(number) button is also with the light button or something?

Popcorn RockenBump said on December 11, 2016 at 6:01 AM
It is weird how awesome it is for the post to be from Tutorial Tom. Also : "Fix a bug which caused the VP to stop moving after being ran into while stunned." makes this an incredible update.

Moonlight Serenity said on December 11, 2016 at 6:28 AM
Thanks, this is super helpful! Though I've been playing toontown since around 2009, even I didn't know some of these!

Lucky Paws said on December 11, 2016 at 8:00 AM
Wow, I never even knew the F3 button would do that. Thank you!

Cool Pinky said on December 11, 2016 at 8:15 AM
Thanks for the tips! They are very helpful! :)

Mr.Megasnoop said on December 11, 2016 at 8:25 AM
Thanks tom some of these I didn't know about! :)

Kittenson said on December 11, 2016 at 9:00 AM

Bonnie Dawg said on December 11, 2016 at 10:18 AM

Trixie Wonderswirl Rewritten ( Pink Cat 109 Laff ) said on December 11, 2016 at 10:19 AM
Wow! I cant wait for these new controls to come out! Also, thanks for fixing the "using emote and spamming at the same time;causing a loud noise that irritates everybody" thing, because that was IRRITATING. Well, thanks for that update up there and see ya later!

Chauncii said on December 11, 2016 at 10:27 AM
Do you think we could have the Sellbot Factory's door animations fixed in the next update?

popcorn said on December 11, 2016 at 11:06 AM
Are not you going to have Christmas ornaments this year?:(

Joey said on December 11, 2016 at 12:07 PM
Still waiting for the crashing bug patch! ^^

Zany Rose said on December 11, 2016 at 12:12 PM
Great Update for new toons! (I already knew most of em.) I still wished I could golf in the CEO though...

Electrojinks said on December 11, 2016 at 1:08 PM
I wish they had that jump warning years ago, I remember getting stuck in a fountain for a good five or ten minutes when I first started playing because I couldn't figure out how to jump out lol

Dizzy wrinklewoof said on December 11, 2016 at 1:11 PM
Thanks so much! I really like how you guys fixed that last glitch and I think it will stop bullying!

Andrew said on December 11, 2016 at 2:55 PM
Thank you for fixing the VP bug. I've seen that a lot during VP battles and it gets annoying so thank you for that.

jake mcboom said on December 11, 2016 at 3:48 PM

Juan said on December 11, 2016 at 4:20 PM
Tom is Back Again!

Super Lollipop Bumblespinner said on December 11, 2016 at 4:54 PM
• Fix a bug which caused the VP to stop moving after being ran into while stunned :DDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDD

Bloo Bunny said on December 12, 2016 at 4:30 AM
It would be nice to be able to use w,a,s,d for movement and have chat open and close with pressing 'enter'! Can't wait for this option!

Marshal said on December 12, 2016 at 10:13 AM
Thanks For The Keys It Helped Me Out A Lot Thanks!

Lyric said on December 12, 2016 at 10:47 AM

Thanks a million :) Best Update ever :)

Deputy wittygrin said on December 12, 2016 at 2:17 PM
YES! ty for fixing the VP gitch!!! ive have to log out a lot because of that glitch lately.

Captain Waldo Picklegadget said on December 12, 2016 at 3:56 PM
This is a really helpful update. A few of these fixes have been long awaited, and its good to see them finally here! My suggestion would be adding the ability to use the WASD keys to move as well as the arrows

Red Sonic said on December 12, 2016 at 4:46 PM
I already know all the hotkeys but nice job with the update!

Hunter Boppen said on December 12, 2016 at 7:04 PM
The One Time TTR Uploads a post it forgets one detail.. Alt+f9 crashes you... RIP

Teemotwist33 said on December 12, 2016 at 11:34 PM
Thanks so much!! Really helps out with the photography!

DoodleDandy said on December 13, 2016 at 6:15 AM
Thanks so much TTR! :D The keys are very helpful to know from now on! Thanks bunches. :)

Poppy said on December 13, 2016 at 9:36 AM
Oh this is great! Squeakity squeak squeak!!!! Sorry, sorry. Got a little exited there. This is real cool though! Oh, also, have any of you seen my sister Pippy? She ate my jellybeans! Again!

Amy (The cat!) said on December 13, 2016 at 9:41 AM
Thanks for all the updates you did, but I have a recommendation (although I love what you already did), you see, the reporting players options are vague, and sometimes the toon may do something thats not in the report options so it looks like were false reporting. So what would be great is a description, so we can have a message of what the toon did, because a toon was abusing a glitch to make us lose vp, but, of course, that wasnt on the list. And none were related. If its too hard its okay, but if its do-able i'd be very thankful for it ( but I am already thankful for everything youve done :D )

Chester Nuttynose said on December 13, 2016 at 6:33 PM
Yeah... I got stuck in a fountain once.

Princess Twinkletoes said on December 14, 2016 at 12:59 PM
I've known these shortcuts since TTO. But thanks for the reminder! :)

King Oscar said on December 14, 2016 at 6:03 PM
Man, I can't wait use these keys. Thanks!

rockdownbiever2 said on December 14, 2016 at 6:06 PM
Those really are good keys. Thanks Tom!

Limey Pie said on December 14, 2016 at 7:57 PM
I didn't know some of dis. Tysm! :3

Bingo Whiskerbounce said on December 16, 2016 at 5:57 AM
This amuses me.

Kirby said on December 16, 2016 at 6:07 AM
OMG!!! Did that say Fix a bug which caused the Vp to stop moving after being ran into while stunned?!?!?!?! YES! Now people can't try greening others!

Oswald Supergadget said on December 16, 2016 at 11:58 PM
