the company i work for has changed the function keys in the *.mnl file. i have went in and tried to change the commands back to what they standardly are, but for some reason, CAD isn't accepting the commands. any ideas? below are a couple of examples of what they were and then what i changed them to.


thanks in advance!

The "F-Keys" are declared in the MNU/MNS file in the Accelerator division,

and Keyboard Shortcuts - Shortcut Keys section of the CUI file.

I have never seen them declared in the MNL file.

If you need to make changes, and you are using CUI (2006+), look in there

first and do yourself a favor and cancel-out all declarations in the MNL file.

Removing the F-Key declaration in the CUI will restore the key behavior.
