Is it possible to swap the Alt and Space bar key for navigation?

I would like to swap the Tumble, Dolly, Zoom navigation controls from 'Alt + Mouse' to 'Space + Mouse'. The only answer I could find when researching this topic was to download third party software to remap the keyboard, but I was wondering if there’s a way to change the hotkeys inside of Maya. The closest workaround I could find was the ability to assign hotkeys to navigation tools in the Hotkey Editor, but then I have to unselect the tool and I would need a different hotkey for each tool.

Hi,

Unfortunately Alt is hardcoded in Maya and not customizable in the hotkey editor so your workaround of having multiple hotkeys for different navigation tools or remapping the Alt key via a 3rd party system utility are the only options.
