Hi guys, I noticed that if press 'D' and 'space' I activate the command 'Dimension'. The same happens with 'R' + 'space' for Reference Planes. The problem is that these single letter commands are not listed in the keyboard shortcuts dialog. Are they anywhere else? Also, is it possible to customize them?

Thanks.

Try to look for your 'keyboardshortcuts.txt'. That's where your shortcuts are in RAC2010. In RAC 2011, Click View tab-Windows panel-User Interface drop-down-Keyboard Shortcuts.

Yes, you can customize it as mhans mentioned.  For those of you who prefer the "space" after a command, its very simple, open up your keyboard shortcuts and add a space after the command but between the quote marks.

Be careful when you modify your shortcuts, as if you have a command which is "D" for dimension, then "DA" for some other command, when you press 'D', you will not immediately activate the command, you have to press space (watch the status bar as it tells you what command it thinks you are trying to activate), or if its worst case, you have to use the up/down arrows to select the command.

Rule of thumb, make sure that none of your commands contain the same letters:  i.e.- If I used 'r' for fortate, and 'ra' for array, this is bad form.  if you want a single letter command, NO OTHER COMMAND may start with that letter...

One last thing, when you press 'D', look at the status bar and see which command it wants to run.  Then try pressing the up arrow key, and you should see another command which also starts with 'D'.  This is because the system can't resolve which command you want, until you press the space key (which is NOT part of the command, if you look in your keyboardshortcuts.txt file, you will see that there isn't a space, but if you look at all your commands, you will see another command which starts with D and then has another or more letters after it).

Thanks a lot, guys.

I know where the shortcuts are, I just didn't know how to setup one letter shortcuts or even if that was possible. Now thanks to thetabest I understand a bit more how that works.

Its so bad though that I can't have one letter shortcuts followed by space and use the same letter to start other shortcuts. Example: "M" + "space" for MOVE and "MM" for MIRROR.
