camera focus on selected entity?

Is there a hotkey for focusing the 3D camera on the currently-selected entity?

Right now you can bring up the Entity List (J), and then click the entity in the list to focus the camera. I was wondering if there was a hotkey to focus the camera on the currently-selected entity, without having to bring up the Entity List. Thanks!

You can always use Ctrl+MMB in orthoview to move the camera to that position, using the height of your most recent selection. It helps to use Ctrl+Tab beforehand so that orthoview is centered on your selection.

I'm about 85% sure there's a hotkey combination that does exactly this, but would have to look into the Keybinds settings or DR user documentation to confirm.

Doesn't Ctrl Tab also switch the view mode of the orthoview from top to side to front?

Yes it does but it also centers the view on the selected entity, is the way I always used to do what Brendon asked. 

Btw Brendon loved the latest trailer of Skin Deep, add a smile during the entire thing, in this early stage is already shaping off to be a cool and funny game!

      Anyone have any luck with light.setShader( string ) ? It seems to make whichever light you apply it to full-bright on the initial invoke?

      Don't you hate it when there's a quality discussion on a forum somewhere online about something, but then two disagreeing users derail and transform it into a back-and-forth poo slinging competition at one another?

      After watching the first three and a half episodes of "The Sandman" last night, I realize once again that overly imaginative narratives are not for me. Also, the main actor looks like he has a toothache.
      Which makes me wonder, is there a Dark Mod mission with a medieval dentist?
