Please please please please fix the Plugin so it doesn't overwrite my keyboard customizations all the time. 

 

The default setup is ridiculous. I want to draw a Circle in a sketch. In plain Inventor I press C and I'm ready to go. In FDS Inventor I have to Press C + Enter... 

 

It's the same with T for text and C for constrain and on and on and on... oh and F for fillet. Why are Facebook and Twitter even options in there? 

 

I understand why you may want to set them initially, but in no way should a plugin EVER override the settings a user has implemented with in the UI.

 

This has driven me nuts for 3 years now... my only regret is it's taken this long to post it on the Ideastation.... I have however brought it up for the last 3 years during the beta and this sillyness is still in the product... I mean come on, Facebook and Twitter shortcuts from within a Sketch? I would have loved to have been in the room when that idea was suggested. Bonkers. 

 

My sarcasm is justified when you consider how much of a pain this is on a daily basis. Please fix this ASAP.

Status: Implemented

All fuctionality of AEC objects should transfer to Inventor.  Most equipment locating is done from walls and columns so those should be availble for reference (realistic view not 2d wire frame) and snaping to when designing and creating the installation drawings.
