ORTHO & OSNAP icon customization

96 Views, 2 Replies

Hi there,

1) I want to customise some new icons so I have a pair of ORTHO and OSNAP icons in all four corners of the screen for speed (I am aware of using F3 and F8 but I like using on screen icons). How do I customise new (or change redundant old) icons to do this?

2) I would also like to have another set of 'draw' and 'modify' strips of icons along the right side of the screen. (I have a set of these icons along the left side of the screen at the moment and would like to 'double-up' by having another set on the right, again for speed) How would I do this?

that will decrease speed by giving up screen real estate if you ask me.... but if you really want to hit f1 and check out CUI.

If you're concerned about speed, learning keyboard and right click shortcuts is the only way to go.

I've tried reading as much i can about creating macros for new customised icons but I dont know how to create an 'F3' or an 'F8' macro- it doesnt seem to recognise F3 or F8 when you try to put it in.

As for taking up too much screen space, it is minimal really. I am into speed but also ergonomics, using on screen icons is better for posture, it prevents having to keep looking down at the keyboard and getting a crook neck!
