Customize Sub Command Shortcut Polyline

Hi, I want to know how to change subcommand shortcut

When I do a Polyline, after i done an arc section, I would like to be able to press "F" instead of "L" to do a line section...

Is there an easy way to do that or do I have to reprogram a new Polyline command in lisp with the subcommand shortcut that I would like? (would prefer to avoid it as sometime I have to work on LT)

The reason behind all of this is that I remapped all my command to keys that are on the left side of the keyboard ... it work really well and I almost never have to lift my left hand except for the case with the polyline... the L key is miles away ...

Right now I remapped a button on my mouse to "L" but its not as natural as just using the keyboard...

You're right there is now way to modify the standard behaviour of a command (or it's options)

but you can UNDEFINE a standard command  and add your version to it with Autolisp but it will not work with LT


for LT i suggest defining a toolbar button or add a menu item to mouse right click.

you could create a command in the CUI

called e.g. MY-F1, which uses the macro


Drag this command onto Shortcut Keys under  Keyboard Shortcuts

in menu list, and type F1 in the Access Key(s) box.

Save the changes and now the F1 key will operate as normal,

except when the PLINE command is active, when it will now

be the equivalent of typing L +  enter.
