MicroStation CONNECT AccuDraw Shortcut Keys

Hi, everyone.

Pre-CONNECT version (on V8i), we could edit a "shortcut.txt" file that would be read by AccuDraw. - or we could even change the "MS_ACCUDRAWKEYS" to look at a different file as well, if we wanted.

Now, on CONNECT, I can't find a variable to edit my AccuDraw shortcut keys, and "MS_ACCUDRAWKEYS" variable was deprecated. If I press "?" on AccuDraw, it displays a "Keyboard Shortcuts" dialog box, listing the current shortcuts, but is there a way to export this out and/or import a different one?

Any help is greatly appreciated...

  • In the CONNECT Edition this is now handled and saved to an XML file. The associated configuration variables that would be used to define the XML are shown below:

    Currently there is no direct way to import/export the file. Currently if you wanted to move the shortcuts to another machine you would have to take a copy of the XML file and move it to the appropriate location on the new machine.

  • Wasn't this saved in the file personal.funckey located in the prefs folder (C:/user/username/appdata/local/bentley/program name/program version/prefs)?

    I could import my old V8i funckey.txt to Connect and now just backup this file along with others and move my personal.funckey around to the appropriate folder whenever needed.

    Edit: sorry, I was confused - in our office we call the function keys "Shortcuts" and the keyboard shortcuts "Tastaturkürzel". The personal.keyboardshortcuts are stored in the same folder.
