Special Feature Hotkeys
Hotkeys can be assigned to two EVOLVE features that are different than any of the others:
- Family Browser
This provides users the ability to assign hotkeys to any family type within the family browser.
- Element Filter
This provides users the ability to assign hotkeys to any element filter rule.
Within each of these features, there is a column within the grid for "Hotkeys". Users can enter any character(s) to assign the specific rule or family a hotkey. To activate these hotkeys users by clicking the corresponding "Hotkey" button found within the EVOLVE Ribbon nested under the feature button.
When clicking the hotkey button, a dialog will appear which will "listen" for the next set of hotkeys to be entered. Users will have a few seconds to enter the hotkey for the specific family or rule before the command ends.
Hotkey the Hotkey
The intent of this feature is to hotkey the feature hotkey button, this will allow users to quickly use the first hotkey which activates the feature hotkeys, then enter the second rule/family-specific hotkey to run the desired function.
