  1. Hello, I'm having some trouble with assigning a new shortcut key to the Cancel command alongside with ESCAPE. I have followed this guide: https://knowledge.autodesk.com/support/autocad/troubleshooting/caas/sfdcarticles/sfdcarticles/Redefining-F1-key-to-use-Cancel-command.html And also tried just dragged the Cancel command to the keyboard shortcuts. However, it does not cancel the way that ESCAPE does. The command pane does not say anything. Although when for example Circle tool is active, when pressing the newly assigned F1 key, it seems to cancel the tool. But if I want to cancel a selection, nothing happens. It adds an empty row in the command history. If I have ^C^C (double), it adds two empty rows. Shouldn't it say "*cancel*"? What am I doing wrong? Thank you!
  2. Not sure if I am the only person in the world that has tried this - But I recently installed Autocad (2007) within the Windows XP environment on my MAC (Lion) running through Parallels. And it sucks. Just waaay too erratic, mouse is all jumping, couldn't even imagine trying to draft a real job. Why would I even bother doing this when there is Autocad for Mac??? One simple reason - for the life of me, and as far as I understand, there is no simple way in Autocad for MAC to customise keyboard shortcuts the way you can within your CUI in Autocad for PC. Its just insane. I live on my keyboard shortcuts, and can't efficiently draft without them. And no, I couldnt load my PC saved CUI on my Mac Autocad either. I am completely self taught, and maybe I am missing something, but surely there is a way to customize the MAC version the way you can in PC???? Ie - I want: SHIFT+V = MOVE SHIFT+R = ROTATE SHIFT+4 = MATCH PROPERTIES etc ehh. Any discussion on this would be much appreciated!!
  3. Hi, I'm just transitioning from PC (AutoCAD 2007) to MAC (AutoCAD 2011) and now fumbling my way through setting up all my customizations again. For the life of me, I can not work out how to customize Short Cut keys! On PC in the CUI box you drag and drop the relevant command up above to the CUI window ontop the little shortcut keys icon then, set your new Access Keys in the box on the right, then bingo! EASY. But on MAC, does this even exist??? I am completely self taught on CAD, only work in 2D, and only use a fraction of its full capabilities. Admittedly, I never have had to write LISP's, or do any text based coding/customization. The simple shortcuts I am trying to achieve are: MOVE - Shift + V ROTATE - Shift + R TRIM - Shift + T FILLET - Shift + F STRETCH - Shift + G Match Properties - Shift + 4 Layer Isolate - Shift + 3 Close - Crtl + W ANY help or a working example of how to achieve this would be HUGELY appreciated! Thank you, Matt
