Modifier key

Because KSP can run on different operating systems the modifier key (Mod) differs between then. In the table above the generic “Mod” key is mapped to the following keys:

  • Windows: Alt (e. g. Alt+L)
  • Mac OS: Option (⌥) (e. g. Opt+L)
  • Linux: Right Shift (e. g. Right Shift+L)

As an example Mod+L locks the current stage. The different key combinations in brackets after the text show the OS's depending key combination.
