    Question AutoCAD 2006 Keyboard Shortcuts assigned to Function keys

    We are just switching from 2004 to 2006. I had several commands that I use on a frequent basis assigned to my "F" keys. I am trying to get them setup again but I am not sure how. They give me a list of commands that are assigned to the keys already but these are not the commands that I want to use. I am trying to locate the macro for things such as the match properties command. So, basically does anyone know where to locate these macros or do they have these keys set for only the few commands listed.

    Try looking in either your main menu or partial menu 2004 *MNS files under the accelerators section.

    Since you say "set up again", I'm guessing this was working for you in 2004?

    Did you do this with the ***ACCELERATORS section of your MNU//MNS file?
    If so, you can load this same menu and they should work.

    We have been using the same MNU file with the same ***ACCELERATORS section since R14.

    I may be wrong here but I'll give my 2cents ...

    I often override some of the F key commands like Grid and coordinates and put in more useful commands like viewport creation and UCS commands in there instead.

    If you don't wanna bother bringing in your old mnu files, all you have to do is go into your CUI and expand to Keyboard Shortcuts - Shortcut keys (right cick -new) and add in whatever you wanna change. Note you'll have to add in a macro to make it all work ....

    Just be sure you save a profile or something with the original F key functions in order to have a default setting or something to go back to just in case things don't work out as anticipated. (you never know)
