Quality of life : new shortcut to call back the last function

Johan Cosandey S22

Really simple and loved feature of Autocad or Rhino : after using a tool, just press "Enter" (or any shortcut) and the last used tool is activated. 

Easy to implement and not critical, but a nice little quality of life improvement.

Try 'W'.

This will toggle between the arrow key and the last tool used.

Hi @Johan Cosandey S22,

You can assign a keyboard shortcut to achieve this function but sure not like ACAD as (Spacebar and Enter) keys have a critical & specific mission in Archicad so you can assign any other keys like in my case (Ctrl+`) can do this for me.

 

Pls take a look at these screenshots, hope they may help.

Very cool trick Barry,

I always search for a shortcut to repeat the last used tool, thanks.

 

BTW why I can't find the Like button in replies?

In the wishes now, only the original wish has a like button to encourage only the original wish to be voted for.

This is because of the wish list update occurring now...
