    Follow ALong Project Part 2 UPDATE

    I added 4 more keyboard shortcuts. Click on Windows>Preferences>Shortcuts and scroll down to Tools/Dimensions. Type an “N” into the Add Shortcut box and press the “+” next to it. Now N= Dimension.

    For the second, click on >Preferences>Shortcuts and scroll to Edit/Make Group. Type “Alt+G” into the Add Shortcut box and press “+”. Now AltG = make a group.

    Third, scroll to Edit/Delete Guides. Press the Ctrl key and type “D”. When you measure something with the tape measure it leaves little tick marks and guide lines. The drawing can get messy real quick with lines that you no longer need. This is a quick way to zap them.

    I zoom to the extent of the drawing often, so scroll to Edit/Delete Guides. In the add shortcut box type” Alt+G.” Now Alt+G = delete guides. That's the fourth one.

    I am preparing the post for drawing the cabinet and I will be referring to these. FWIW.
