I was thinking on how to memorize solidworks shortcut but so many shortcut so I decided to put it as my background,
Can anybody share some ways to make your Solidworks Life much easier,
That I like and that I'm going to try right now - great idea Jaja Jojo
Please post that here....
What are your most impressive tricks of solidworks, Please spread.
That would drive me nuts (and it is a crowded vehicle!). I'd be more inclined to print and post this near the monitor than to have it as a backdrop.
Put it into a note within a sketch and show hide the sketch - it is only for memorization, once you learn them you can hide...
Yeah i try that but when i'm focus in my screen i always forgot that have cheating notes, so put in my background so far i've already memorize 45% of the shortcut,

I agree. I have that kind of stuff printed out and pinned to the bulletin board just behind and above my primary monitor.
Ok - Here is what I did
The best thing about putting it in a sketch - Now you can suppress the sketch, so it doesn't slow up the file, but even with it suppressed all you need to do is hover your pointer over the sketch and it will highlight that way you can always keep it hidden but also show in an instant
It is now in my part and assembly templates as a note inside a sketch, plus the top sketch where it is easy to show/hide, plus it being in a sketch allows you to zoom in/out as well and it is right on the point of origin so it will always be easy to find....
Thanks for sharing
you could also have it in a word or pdf document in the design binder
And that gets me thinking, some of our CAD policies and procedures can be there as well! No more excuses!
Yeah you could but that is more movement and additional clicks - this is just placing your mouse on the sketch - no clicking and picking - oh - eventually there'll be a book in my templates, plus you can suppress and still show... - wasn't this excited learning something new in a long time......
Of course the ultimate would be voice commands! No shortcuts needed!!
For anyone that wants to use the design binder idea, here's what I put in there. see attached file stolen right from SWX website.
if anyone has a nice, clean graphic for the background idea, please post...
In my Design Binder (Part and Assembly Template)
And here's a PDF version of the same thing:

Although looking at their website looks like they haven't done much with it for quite a few years (2013)
the official list...
..this reminds of when I first start using CAD ~1983-84,.... we had cardboard cheat sheets attached to the monitor bezel and keyboard which showed key strokes for functions using CADDS (Computervision).
..later, I recall AutoCAD as well as other 3rd party Lisp/macro tools used or copied the idea using cardboard cheat sheets you could attach to the monitor bezel and keyboard.
Once we used to memorize the telephone numbers. We could use a public phone and dial anybody's number.
Since mobile phones are around we started using contact list and then we stopped using our memory.
I must confess I don't even know my son's number anymore and I won't be able to talk to him if my cell phone is ran out of battery.
I've realized I must try to use a bit of my memory once in a while to stop it dying. It may be hard, but it's worth trying.
I will stay with memorizing the short cuts instead of having them in front of my eyes.
How about these: SolidWorks Keyboard Sticker
