I use "Alt a" on my keyboard to get grid lines to align my dimensions on drawings.
I want to make this a button on my space pilot.
Is this possible?
Also, "Ctrl tab" to change between drawing and model.
I have an older Logitech Space Traveler, but I would think it should be possible. Also - have you tried putting them on your "S"-key shortcut bar? It seems like it would be very helpful there.
Yes, That is a great idea. I didnt know you could add that to the "S key".
You wouldn't need to do it by assigning Alt-A. View Grid is an existing command. You can apply it to either the S-Key and/or a mouse-gesture by customizing.
I'm curious as to what Alt a is doing. I know that I can turn on a grid in a drawing (never have wanted to) but I don't see any mechanism to tie Alt a to that function unless it's just a hotkey that someone assigned to View/Grid. Is that your connection?
I was researching this Spacepilot before I purchased it and you were in the video describing your use of it.
You have helped me many times with problems in the past and I thought it funny to see you in the video.
So, thanks for talking me into this purchased.
I use "Alt a" as a short cut to the grid so I can align my dimensions on my drawing.
I find it interesting how folks that use SW are connected through the variety of things we all do each day. Who we know, where we go, who we talk to, what we watch, who we run into at the airport, etc.
Ok then, I think you are wanting to assign a key on your SpacePilot to the command of Show Grid, right? If you go to your menu for Customize Buttons, the Button Mapping dialog, scroll down to View, expand that and pick View Grid. Assign to whatever button you choose.
As far as Ctrl-tab, the only way I can see is to hold the Ctrl key on the SpacePilot and assign the Tab key to a button. You can find tab under the 3DxWare Functions group.
I didn't have a Space Pilot but on my Space Navigator it's possible to assign a 'macro' under the buttons.
In SW I assign 'Alt-G' to 'Grid'.
In the 3DxWare (Release Version 3.14.2) under 'Custom Functions' it's possible to record a key combination, I record 'Alt-G'.
Finally program the button and select the new function from the list.
It's working here.
Hope this will help you.
