Hotkeys are useful: they can help you keep track of where you are in the new z-axis world.

To use a hotkey, simply press the corresponding F1-F8 or Shift+F1...F8

To set a hotkey, enter the Hotkey menu at the main menu to bring up the screen. You will then see a menu with all your current hotkeys. Move your screen to the 'view' you want to hotkey to, and then press the hotkey sequence you'd like to use for the location. This will get you to the right place on the menu. Then, press z and the hotkey will be all set up!

Likewise, to change the name of a hotkey while in the hotkey menu, highlight the hotkey in question, then press n, then input a name and press enter.

By default, the F1 hotkey starts out set to the position of your Wagon, with the name "Gate". All other hotkeys are unselected, and have a generic name ("Hotkey2").
