SS4/CE Toggle Keyins

I have nearly every function key tied to a keyin in order to quickly change tool settings on the fly for more expedited drawing creation.  In many cases these come in pairs were F5 and F6 each perform a similar keyin effectually just toggling back and forth between them.

Is there a way to do this with just a single button press to verify the current state and then toggle it to the other.  Or possible single click = keyin-A and double click =keyin-B

  • Unfortunately, this is not possible. You cannot assign a 'double-click' of a function key to a separate key-in from a 'single-click' of that same function key. You can, however, use the Function Keys menu to assign keyin-A to, say, F1 then assign keyin-B to Ctrl+F1 or Alt+F1. This way the only difference between the two key-ins is holding your finger down on a different key while hitting the Function Key.
