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!

      Having seen the new scifi stuff from bladeghost/scythwraith, want to continue the cyberpunk project. Only one problem, can't map.
