from straight line to spline line

When I draw the detail line (DL), Is there a way to switch from straight line to spline line quickly?

It's kind of a pain to keep moving the mouse to the toolbar to change the line type.


I tried to assign a keyboard shortcut to the spline line but it didn't seem to work.


Thanks in advance.

In Revit 2013 and later, there is a keyboard shortcut command called Default : Spline. If you assign a shortcut to this (I used DS), it will change the line type.

This was a bug that was fixed for Revit 2013, so it won't work in earlier versions of Revit.

Hope this helps you -
