I want to customize my "s key", but it wont show up when i hit "S". Also I have tried to find it in the customize -> keyboard and nothing shows up. Not sure where to find this.. Nothing happens when i hit S. Running SW 2017
Is this a new install, or has it worked before?
if it is a new install "reset to defaults" should bring it back.
you can look for it here
i really do not want to reset to defaults, i have countless shortcuts.. I guess I could copy them and then reset and then reinstall them. It does not show up when i search "s"
You can save your settings, reset to default and then bring your settings back.
you should always have a copy of your Profile saved for this type of event.
ok i saved and restored, and still get nothing...
this is a new install, and I have never used it before but I wanted to start using it, running out of mouse gestures and keys
May need to call the Var on this one, possible delete "reg file"
This happened to me and i finally fixed it by resetting the registry:
Resetting the SOLIDWORKS registry
Edit: I should add that i used the copy settings wizard to backup and restore my settings while resetting the registry, so i lost nothing but fixed the S key
Can you tell me what service pack of SOLIDWORKS 2017 you are using and save out your registry and post it here so I can investigate?
To save your registry, run regedit from the start bar.
Then navigate to HKEY_CURRENT_USER/SOFTWARE/SolidWorks
Then right click on SOLIDWORKS 2017 and choose export and save it as any name. Then use the advanced editor when replying back and attach the file (Attach link is in the lower right corner in the advanced editor).
Hey Jim, I am using SP3.0. I attached the registry as you asked. Thanks for looking into this.
Strange, but I cannot reproduce it on SP03 with your registry settings.Can you try exiting and restarting SOLIDWORKS?
If that doesn't work, try rebooting your machine and restarting SOLIDWORKS.
If that doesn't work, try unassigning the S key from the command you currently have it assigned to as a test (it is currently assigned to Edit, This Configuration). Then see if the Shortcut Bar option shows up.
Let me know the outcome of these three different tests.
A series of restarting my computer and solidworks and then it showed up in the menu.. Thanks for taking the time to look at this.
