I want to share with or use my shortcut keys from a computer to another one

Hi,

 

I want to use my shortcuts to another PC.

I assigned my shortcuts from options not making a script for this

 

I think I need to export it first, then copy this from a computer to another one.

so How can I export it?

or Is there any good approaches for this? For example I really like Eagle's library system based on CLOUD system.

I use three computers (home, working space, personal laptop)

Is there anyway like this for script like sharing between PCs in Cloud circumstance?

 

 

Thanks for Reading.

Hi @skku7714,

I hope you're doing well. The best way would be to copy those assignments to your eagle.scr and then just copy that to all of your computers. You can look at the default-assign.scr for an example of how to do this, it's actually very easy.

The eagle.scr file you would edit would be in the scripts > scripts folder.

Let me know if there's anything else I can do for you.

Best Regards,

HI @jorge_garcia2 

 

Thanks for your answer

but I don't know yet how to copy all of my assignment.

for example, I set all shortcuts from OPTIONS > ASSIGN (at the below dialog)

Capture.JPG

so It does not show in the eagle.scr.

so How can I export these command as a text file?

I could not find my customized shortcuts in any scr files.

I found that in the eaglerc.usr.sav

and copy lines for assigned shortcuts and changed it as a script format.

 

Here's below as I use for reference

Where are these files on EAGLE 9.6.2? I can't find either eaglerc.usr.sav nor eaglerc.usr

I looked into AppData\Roaming\CadSoft\EAGLE and nothing is there.

 

I just found this file AppData\Roaming\Eagle\settings\9.6.2\eaglerc (without any extension), but it explicitly say DO NOT EDIT!

 

So Autodesk, how am I supposed to export/import my keyboard shortcuts in EAGLE 9.6.2?

OK, eventually I managed to transfer my shortcuts...

From my old computer, I got my shortcuts from the file `AppData\Roaming\Eagle\settings\9.6.2\eaglerc` and then manually re-written them (to make them compatible) into this file `C:\Users\<user>\Documents\EAGLE\scripts\eagle.scr`

 

Particularly, I had to change the shortcut definitions from this..

Brd.Key.F5 = "Script"
Brd.Key.F6 = "Move"

into this...

BRD:
ASSIGN F5 Script;
ASSIGN F6 Move;

 

 So, it's relatively easy. It's just odd that the shortcuts aren't stored in some file, which you could easily copy from one computer to another, but you have to re-write them into another syntax (and place them into eagle.src) to make them portable. It seems like some design fault.

Hi @midvok ,

 

I hope you're doing well, the most portable and in my opinion best way to setup shortcuts is through the eagle.scr file. EAGLE will store shortcuts in the eaglerc file and that option works, the problem is that the eaglerc file contains a lot of settings and messing with some of them can actually cause EAGLE to become non-functional (that's why you have the don't edit warning). For that reason that file is stored in an inconvenient location to lower the chances of the file being tampered with.

 

If you setup the shortcuts in the eagle.scr or some other script file, you can share that with others and transfer your shortcuts from version to version.

So, instead of messing with "eaglerc" file, I could change the shortcuts in `C:\Users\<user>\Documents\EAGLE\scripts\eagle.scr` ?
Do I have to run the script to write the shortcuts in the "eaglerc" file? Or just sitting there the shortcuts will load?

 

I would like to save my shortcuts, but also my preset layers, my saved grids, default grid settings, etc
