Setting up hotkeys

I am attempting to set up hotkeys for common operations. But this is proving to be a struggle. For me the most common tasks are: New file, Sheet metal tab & flanges, editing sketch, save


For example. To select a sketch for editing, how do I get the cursor to highlight a sketch without using a mouse.

Like one hotkey for making the tree active, then arrow to the sketch

Then I plan to have Control-K for edit sketch.

Shift-K is my insert sketch. i.e. I decided that K=sketch, Shift=insert or add, and Control=Edit


F9 turns the tree on and off, but I don't see any options in the customize menu to make the tree active or select the tree area of the interface.


Another one I have been trying to figure out is the hotkey to say OK (Accept green check mark), no matter what is going on.


I am open to suggestions and themes for setting up hotkeys that more experienced Works people have found to work well.


I am making the transition from Solid Edge. I have used many other CAD packages over time. But this is only my second parametric modeler. This is my first time trying to set up hotkeys for a history based software.
