Beyond Training – Essentials

Wednesday January 8, 2014 at 4:00pm
 
In this weeks Webcast we went Beyond Training - Essentials and covered various customization methods to help you get the best set up for maximum efficiency from the user interface. One of my favorite shortcuts is through the 'S' Key.
Simply pressing 'S' on your keyboard we can activate this shortcut bar and through a right-click we can even customize this further with additional command icons or even re-size the toolbar itself. The S key brings up toolbars specifically for the environment you are in from Part/Assembly/Drawings to Sketch modes.
S-Key
The main benefit why I find this so useful is the toolbar appears where your cursor is and therefore will save you time moving your cursor to the command manager tabs to facilitate the appropriate command.
