I programmed it for Raster Design commands, but threw in a few for repetitive ACAD commands.
    Oh yeah, X-keys products are top notch! The downside is the price tag they carry.

    I agree about the price. I'm surprised they haven't gone up since I bought this one. I got a great deal on this one, but the listed price hasn't changed. This one has been a workhorse. I'd like to get one with more keys, but haven't made up my mind to do that.

    I also want the train simulator console.
    Give people a job worth doing, the tools to do it, recognition of a job well done & get out of the way.

    Cool Re: AutoCAD Keyboard

    So... My question to you.


    Would you purchase an Autocad Keyboard?

    This sounds like a great idea to me, and I would consider purchase. But is this an expantion on the standard keyboard? Or is it an entirely new keyboard? My job requires me to do more than just AutoCAD commands when using my computer...

    PGP files do not cover every situation.

    Autocad Keyboard.........................?

    Can we get one with more keys on the left side. I'm running out of keys for my command alias definitions.

    a - used
    aa- used
    aaa-used
    aaaa- to long to type out
    s - used
    ss - used
    sss - used


    More keys on the left or I'll have to rotate my keyboard 90%%d. That didn't work, forgot my base point.

    Chris

    Still looking for the "any" key so I can continue

    You could make an AutoCAD keyboard from an ordinary keyboard using this simple tutorial. The whole process will take about 15 minutes!
