I was used to using Shortcuts like

i for iproprietes,

l for line

M for measurements…

Now that i had to reinstall Inventor,

Most of all my Sort cuts have to be followed by an Enter..


i+Enter for ,

L+Enter for line,


The new shortcuts where not entered with an Enter.

How can i fix this ?

Hi  SophieSmith,


I  think this is the issue, but I might be mistaken:


Tools tab Options panel Customize button


Look for the Use default multi-character Command Aliases option and check that it is not selected.


I hope this helps.
Best of luck to you in all of your Inventor pursuits,
