@ my office then I had to copy and paste aligned alot so i finally got smart and created my own shortcut, I changed it from nothing to "XV" it is my fav shortcut of all time and the one i use the most. I have created alot more but that is the one that i use the most. If anyone has any other good ones then you should post them here. Puh Thanks alot.

I feel bold today- so I'll let you in on my shortcut secret- I've added a space at the end of them to 'execute' like an AutoCAD command. 

ref - reference plane

q- save

draft - new drafting view

 All function keys

oooh, one more


I use the '/~ [spanish accents] key for my snaps so that I can adjust my snaps setting at any time (including mid-command).   Especially helpful when I want to draw in 'quick' revision clouds.

I have multy story building project. I assigned "VL" to paste aligned>select level by name

It is awesome.

I also asigned "X" to Modify (like Minicad/Vectorworks) it is great when in editing mode Cryingin groups, families, etc...)

printed out all the commands, highlighted the ones that I wanted, then made as many of them "one hand" key combos as possible.  I can activate almost all of the commands (except the stupid suboptions after the command has been started) from my keyboard, without ever taking my right hand from the mouse.  Only problem, none of them have any "sense", they are just placed such that the easiest keys to type are assigned to the most used commands.  i.e.- I use "f" for move, "v" for copy, "d" for dimension (anyone know how to choose what kind of dimension, angular, etc. by keyboard, without clicking on it with the mouse?).  I kept my sheet nearby, and whenever I couldn't remember a command, I'd look at it, then use it.  Took me a week to memorize ALL of them.  But I'm the only lunatic I know who has done something as crazy/stupid as this.  But it is faster than using the mouse!
