I did not find the hotkeys on the manual. can anyone tell where they are or what are them?
Look in ~/.ardour/ardour.rc . That file contains the hotkeys ardour uses. If you don't like some of them, you can modify that file to change them.
How would I define the option and Apple keys as part of key bindings for os x?
(the Alt key doesn't work by default on my laptop).
