AutoCAD Mechanical 2013 and short cuts

I'm using AutoCAD Mechanical a long time and now I changed to AutoCAD Mechanical 2013. There, I can't use any longer the short cuts, which are shown inside the acad.pgp. Is there a switch, where I can activate the short cuts again.

Hello Christoph,


Have you used the Reinit command? That will reload your pgp file while your in Autocad. Along with closing Autocad and reopening it.

Are you using the AutoCAD pgp file under the support folder?

You can find your pgp filepath by type

(findfile "acad.pgp")
You can create your commands by opening the PGP file and putting them under the –User Defined Command Aliases. Make sure there are no duplicates with the existing ones.


Hope it helps.
