I understand that to assign your own keyboard shortcut you go Preference>Shortcuts.
I want to assign a shortcut for “Duplicating Drawing”. But when I select “Duplicating Drawing” under the Element Menu, then press a character that i would like to use as shortcut (ie: “d” or “f6” or any other key), nothing happens.
How do you assign shortcut once you’re inside the shortcut menu? i clicked a lot of keys to try and make it a shortcut but nothing’s happening.
Can you combine 2 actions to become 1 shortcut? i.e.: I want to copy the existing frame, paste it onto the next frame, then Duplicate Drawing. Can all these actions combine to become 1 shortcut?
Preferences => Shortcuts => Commands
- Select “Duplicate Drawing” or whatever you want to assign a shortcut to.
If you are working on Duplicate Drawings, there is a bar that says “none” if it is like mine in version 7 which indicates no shortcut is currently assigned (I don’t know whether TB assigned a shortcut to this in version 8 ).
- Click on that bar
- Do the keyboard sequence you want to represent the function (i.e. Duplicate Drawing).
That sequence will replace the “none” and also appear in the Current Key field. NOTE: this field was blank and the bar labeled “none” because nothing was assigned as a shortcut to Duplicate Drawing.
- Click OK to save.
You can only assign a shortcut to something already listed in Commands.
You cannot select more than one at a time from that list so you cannot combine any functions in a shortcut.
