How can I customize the keyboard shortcuts to numeric only shortcuts?


  1. Go to File > Settings > User > Preferences.
  2. Select the Position Mapping category.
  3. Check Use Position Mapping.
  4. Change the Main to 1234567890 and the Task & Ribbon to 123456789, or some combination. The Task & Ribbon can only accept up to 9 entries. It will not work with more than 9 entries.

Here is an example below:

Once completed, you will be able to use the keyboard to run commands. You must have the Workflow and Ribbon you want selected. In this example my workflow is OpenRoads Modeling and my ribbon is Geometry. When I hit (3) I go into the Horizontal category. When I hit (1) after the (3), I select the Line Between Points command.
