One thing you are going to find very different when working with Wings 3D is that there are very few hotkeys. It’s very much user driven and it is expected that you will define hotkeys all of your own. Right off the bat, there is one you should define, that of Cut->Edge. This shows just how simple the process is.
First off, bring up the menu containing the item you want to hotkey.
Hit the insert key.
Look at the status bar for instructions or further details.
Hit the key you want to assign as a hotkey.
I highly suggest assigning Cut to it’s own hotkey, it will greatly increase your speed. Really, the key thing to remember here is, when using Wings 3D, hit the Insert Key to bind a hotkey. Should you screw up, you can always fix your mistakes using the advice in this thread.
