It is not possible to define custom keyboard sohortcuts (not aliases)!
- This possibility is not avaiable via CUI
- Even more ZWCAD 2017 doesn't accept keyboard sorcucts defined in ***Accelerators section of the MNU file

Are you able to inform when this possibility will be included into 2017 version, please?

That is a rubbish answer.....

I have been doing my own drafting for the last ten years, for the previous ten I had the benefit of draftys wherever I worked. Personally and often for them, it's always been a case of mouse at the right hand and keyboard at the left. As such keyboard shortcuts have been ascribed in whatever CAD package I had been using, that being Zwcad for the last eight years.

To find now that the latest upgrade has deleted a facility that enables the process of drafting, that which the program was designed for, is a massive step back and to have the developer say, we may or may not have a look at that, can't say... is a tremendous slap in the face to their clients....!

You don't issue an upgrade where facility and flexibility to perform the tasks of drafting have been deleted, that's garbage.....

Hi Stuart,

Thanks for your reply. In the latest version ZWCAD 2018, the keyboard shortcut customization is available in CUI function now. In fact, the reason why ZWCAD 2017 doesn't support keyboard shortcut is that it is the third generation of ZWCAD product, and we reconstructed the engine of this version. What's more, from the beginning it is designed to be more flexible. And in the first year version of a totally new product, we also added many new features in it, while in the meantime, some functions were not included in it, like keyboard shortcut.

Anyway, keyboard shortcut is now supported in ZWCAD 2018 now.

Send a copy over then…

and will it, unlike 2017, be able to read the profile I have been using for the last 8 years and likewise my custom menus….?

the "flexibility" you speak of seems to have marginalised many….

Hello Stuart,

Yes, ZWCAD 2018 is able to read profile in Options->Profiles->Import and customized menus with Menuload command. You can get the ZWCAD 2018 from the download page https://www.zwsoft.com/zwcad/download_center/
