Toggle Lock Shortcut in Family Editor

Toggle Lock Shortcut in Family Editor

My initial thought is to just have Spacebar be the toggle for locking a newly aligned, constrained element within the Family Editor. It could be any shortcut, if there was an option within the keyboard shortcuts for it.

 

For example:

I align a line to a reference plane, the lock shows up, I hit spacebar. Done.

 

When you have a lot of constraints to add, it's a pain to lock everything with the mouse. If there was a keyboard shortcut option, that would be great!

The problem would be when there are multiple locks, such as when you draw a line - 2 or 3 locks show up. Which one would the space toggle?

It would probably be all or nothing. Most of the time I get multiple toggles, I don't trust that they are locking where I want them anyway, so I'd rather just ignore those and go back to align/lock to the workplanes. That way I know for sure what I'm constraining to.

Thanks for taking the time to submit your idea. Unfortunately, this idea did not get the support of the community over the last 6 months and as such we will not be pursuing it at this time. Please feel free to rework (titles and clear descriptions are really important) and resubmit this one down the road.

Wow, can't believe this didn't get any support. How many hours haven't we all wasted on moving the mouse to click those padlocks!? Too many!

agree with the lock all and unlock all option on a string of dimensions where I am trying to lock them all

You don't need support from community for such basic user interface input, these had to be implemented from the start when the software was developed.. Autocad developer knows this including the real dark theme.

Autodesk, please use more shortcuts. there has to be a shortcut to toggle constrain in align command.

Still nothing for this.. 😕

Can't vote but I support it as well! My hand hurts from all the locks I have to click every time I create a new family. Is there a new thread for this? Where can I vote?
