Shortcut Keys in 2012

"Many keyboard shortcuts are already set for most commonly used actions. You can modify the default shortcuts or add new shortcuts, if necessary. " -Help Documentation in Navis


How do I modify and add Keyboard shortcuts? This is a help document that states you can do something but gives you no reference on how to do it. In Navis 2010 I could go into the Customize option for each tool and assign a Hotkey for it. Even in the classic view of 2012 I can find no such feature. Was this feature left off of 2012 or am I just missing something?

Hi Cozmo23,

The ability to customize keyboard shortcuts has been removed.  It appears that the portion of the documentation you referenced needs to be updated regarding this change. I'll let our development know.

If you liked the ability to customize shortcuts, I recommend logging an enhancement for it on our feedback page:

The Default Keyboard Shortcuts still work in the program and you can find a quick reference on what they are by selecting the Help Topics and expanding Quick Start > The User Interface > Default Keyboard Shortcuts > Quick Reference (tab).

Best regards,

The update to the Help document still has not been added. I don't see a reason to remove this feature as it allows one to create a better workflow instead of clicking back through the ribbons or adding a bunch of quick access buttons.
