Unity shortcuts to making level design easier

Unity like many other programs has a number of keyboard commands to speed up the workflow
let’s start with the ones inside the scene view that we can use while doing level design

Press W ||E|| R
with these three keys we can change the transform component of the object we have selected
W- position
E- rotation
R- scale

Using Control (or Command)
let’s go ahead and see how to change from continuous to discrete. In fact, by holding down CTRL or Command, we can move, rotate or scale our gameobject in a discrete way

Vertex Snap
you have to arrange two objects close together without interpenetration is really very simple, just hold down the V key and select one of the vertices of the gameobject, it will move to the nearest vertex.

last but not least, especially when you are working on a layer and you need to add more elements of the same object.
Ctrl+D is the answer creates a duplicate of the selected object and you will only have to move it to its new position.

I hope it was a useful read. See you next time, space developer.
