    New Shortcut Keys

    AutoCAD users who like shortcuts will love this.

    Press [ALT]. You will see numbers on the quick access toolbar, and letters under the ribbon tabs. If you press that particular number or letter, it will activate the tool (or tab).                                                              

    Now try to press any letter that represents a tab. You can start with H when you have home tab active. You will see the next level shortcut key on each tool.

    Now type any letter combination that represents a tool. You can start with LI for the line tool. The line tool is immediately activated without pressing enter. Try it out and note you don’t have to type capitals.

    Note these shortcuts are available in earlier versions of AutoCAD.
