#1 Keyboard Shortcuts

I didn't find much about keyboard shortcuts in the tutorials or the forum. Does SkyCAD have keyboard shortcuts? or are they still in the future? Something as simple as CTRL+P does not print the page.

Coming up...

Thanks for posting on the forum.

I didn't find much about keyboard shortcuts in the tutorials or the forum.

Indeed, not much is mentioned about keyboard shortcuts!  We have a few (CTRL+S for 'Save All', CTRL+C for copy, CTRL+V for paste...) but this is definitely a place where we know we need to improve.  More precisely, not only are we working on adding more, but also allowing users to customise their own shorcuts for specific commands.

Coming up sometime this year...


Sounds exciting


Any update?

Any update on this?

I find a lot of actions are quite tedious without having keyboard shortcuts.

At a minimum:

- Navigate: Jump to a linked component or linked OPR. It would be nice if the linked component/OPR was auto-selected when this happens, so you can quickly navigate back without having to re-select it.

- Move: Move the current selection, so you don't have to then click and drag one of the elements within the selection. Just press the key and it will initiate the move of the selected elements, then left-click to release.


Any others would be a bonus, but those two would make my life so much easier. I wouldn't mind if they weren't user configurable, fixed to a specific key is fine.

About time for another bump of this. I know I've said it before but I won't care if they aren't customizable, some hardcoded shortcuts is perfectly fine for now.

Thank you for the feedback everyone.

We will address UI/UX improvements such as these after the Pro version has been released later this year.

Thank you for your patience in the meantime.
