Ability to assign keyboard shortcuts to frequently used tools

PennyDB

Modelling with one hand on the mouse (in the model) and the other on the keyboard (typing commands) is much quicker than mouse selection only.  BUT please pay attention to the size of peoples hands!  I have small lady hands and the combos CTRL +7 (for story settings) and ALT+7 for (save view) are impossible to achieve one-handed, as are many of the three-key combos, especially if they use both the CRTL and SHIFT key at the same time.

Dexterity decreases with age, and Graphisoft should be thinking about inclusiveness!

Go to Work Environment > Shortcut Schemes > Keyboard Shortcuts and assign your preferred shortcuts to these commands. Save your Shortcut Scheme and assign it to your Work Environment profile. You can also export schemes for saving and importing to other computers.

 

You should add a Signature to your Profile (click the Profile button near the top of this page) with your ArchiCAD version and operating system (see mine for an example) for more accurate help in this forum.

Thanks David, that has really helped.  Sometimes these things are totally buried and you need a person in the know to tell you!

Yes, there are too many features to know the entire application.
