Have you ever wanted to have a shortcut to a series of keyboard shortcuts?  For example, you can reload keynotes with a series of keyboard shortcuts, like thisOr, you could record them with reckey, save the script, create a link to it and trigger it from a single in-canvas mouse click…

I know this method may not be for everyone, but then again, you might find it useful 🙂

Use the URL linker script method here.  The steps are essentially to record the shortcuts, save the script and trigger it.  Here’s some extra info:

  1. somepathKeyreplayerReload_Keynotes.lnk”
  2. somepathreckeyRecKey.exe replay4 /p

A while back, I mentioned the YourRibbon addin called Hotkey, which allows you to assign a HotKey to a specific component, not just a command.  There is another one called Color by the same dev.  Using this, you can override colors in your working environment in Revit, turn color on while working in Revit and back to black when it’s time to print.  Video below:

Can I transfer my settings for HotKey and Color?
Yes.  The the file hotkey.xml and color.xml stores your settings and can be copied from computer to computer.  This is a great way for one person to setup the firm-wide standard.
