Try cmd + # (the key with ’ and # near the return key) , this works for me on my European keyboard.

@Aleksander_Klajderic There’s no EU keyboard, but plenty of different keyboard layouts worldwide. Every layout has a different key combination to show/hide UI.

Check these shortcut cheat-sheets and if your keyboard layout is missing, let me know and I can try to add or at least tell you how to show/hide ui.

Thanks this was amazing tip. I’ve tried to use macOS Keyboard hotkey overrides to make some hotkey work for Show UI on Finnish keyboard. But somehow Figma doesn’t respect macOS-specified app-hotkeys, so nothing has worked.

But CMD + . does indeed work to Hide/Show UI. Thanks!

For Brazilians/Portuguese who were googling this:

Just found that in PTB/PTB2 keyboards it is Ctrl + ]

Para os brasileiros/portugueses procurando, o atalho para Show/Hide UI em teclados PTB/PTB2 é Ctrl + ]
