Function keys customization

Can anybody help?

Using the CUI editor I have tried to customize the function keys in Autocad 2012.

 

The default for each of the keys is noted here:

F4

Command:  <3DOsnap on>
F6

Command:  <Dynamic UCS on>

 

In Autocad 2006 I have the keys customized to do the following:

F4

Macro:  '_zoom_p

F6

Macro:  _cen

 

Can anybody help?

That comes with Autocad, it's temp. override keys, don't mess with it. When you do as I showed you, drop it at the "SHORTCUT KEYS"  it will work.

Fine it worked now. 

Drag and drop to the Shortcut Keys section.

Don't click on the 3 dots button. 

Just type the key combination into the Access Key(s) box (i.e. F6 or F4)
