In the previous blog, we added icons to elements and associated key-ins to them. In this blog, let us create saved views, assign keyboard shortcuts to the screen menus, and learn to use the screen menus.
Tip: In case you make any changes to the screen menu, do remember to update the saved view.
Now let us assign a keyboard shortcut to the screen menu.
The above syntax in the keyboard shortcut will open the screen menu as a pop-up.
Let us add another keyboard shortcut, but with a different syntax:
The above keyboard shortcut should keep the screen menu open in a separate window.
Now that you have the screen menu created, let us see how to open and use it. There are different ways in which you can open a screen menu:
To open the screen menu as a pop-up:
Once the screen menu is opened, you may also use shortcut key to activate a tool. For example, press <L> to start the Place SmartLine tool.
To open the screen menu in a separate window, press <]>. The screen menu is displayed in a separate window.
