im new to MicroStation (currently in training) and i wondered if it´s possible, to reassign the Left Click on the Mouse to the Spacebar, so that you could in theorie draw with the Keyboard alone.
Thanks in advance for the help.
Here is a brief interweb article on just that subject-www.wikihow.com/Use-a-Keyboard-to-Click-Instead-of-a-Mouse

I am not sure how it can work:
Or is you aim to simulate the pushed mouse button, but to obtain coordinates from the mouse? I think it is not possible, even when an application can be probably written to add such functionality.

BUTTONACTION DATA is the keyin for a data point that you might be able to assign to a function key or keyboard shortcut (which was already mentioned). (+) Keyins or data point tentative point and reset - [Archived] AskInga Wiki - MicroStation - Bentley Communities. But as others have mentioned locating the position of the data point may still be your challenge depending on what you're trying to accomplish.
The key-in is "buttonaction data". Why does it need to be the space bar? Don't you need the space bar to give you an actual "space" text character? Won't a function key work just as well?
Thanks that is the command i was hoping to get. I only wanted to acomplish not to reach for the mouse every time i use the Key-In function and confirm the length i put in.
