View Full Version : shortcut commands
11th Jan 2006, 04:33 pm
Does anyone know how to change the shortcuts ..... for example, make copy just C instead of control C. i know there was a way to do this in 02, but i cant figure out how to do it in 06.

I don't know about 06, but in 05 there is an ACAD.lsp file that will have a bunch of commands in it. I do remember watching a webcast about this topic being a lot easier to manipulate. Anyway, your ACAD.lsp file will have commands in it that look like this:
(DEFUN C:C () (COMMAND "COPY")(PRINC))
Change the value after the : to be what you want.
Hope this helps
If you check out autodesk.com they have archives of all the webcast they show. I know that there was one for 06 on this topic.

The shortcut file is acad.pgp (or something similar if you are using special versions like Mechanical)
Either find the file and open it...or go to 'Tools' -> 'Customize' -> 'Edit program parameters'.
Change whatever short cuts you want and save the file.
Then back in Autocad, type "reinit" and choose PGP file and hit OK.

Directly from AutoCAD (2005):
"Command aliases are shortcuts or alternative names for commands that you enter at the keyboard. The acad.pgp file lists the command aliases. You can change or delete these aliases, or you can add some of your own by editing the acad.pgp file. To access the acad.pgp file, on the Tools menu, click Customize, then Edit Custom Files, and then Program Parameters (acad.pgp)."
Note: That at least in version 2005 typing "C" alone will generate the Circle command. But, as stated above, aliases can be changed or deleted. Reassigning to a different task should be straightforward.

Addendum to my reply of 1/11/06.
I should have added that the acad.pgp file can be editted with an ASCII text editor such as Notepad.
