I have tried searching, to no avail.

I have a complex build with bounding boxes.

Is there a way (using keys/keyboard) to select a child prim, ie cycle through the child prims in order until i get to the one i wish to edit.

for PC - Edit / Build menu

select the object

check Edit Selected / Edit linked parts or whatever your viewer calls it

click one prim - starting with root is useful

then hold the CTRL key and click the arrow forward > or arrow backward < key to cycle through the prims

I have Firestorm

I select a link set

Set to "Edit linked"

Click on a prim

Hold control key down

When i use the arrow keys, my AV just moves in the direction of arrow keys. the CTL key does bring up the edit rotation menu.

Thank you!

I totally ignored that it's actually the , and . (comma and fullstop) I press - they have the arrow as the Upper Case thingie on those keys -, since I don't need to hold down the SHIFT key in my viewer to cycle through the child prims. Sorry about that!

Furthermore, once you have an object selected, if you check "Select Face", these hotkeys then cycle through the faces within that object.
