My secret to speed, is the command alias. I have a 1 or 2 key stroke alias for every AutoCAD command. Probably a throwback to my Arris days, but my AutoCAD user screen has no buttons to click.
Same here, but I never got into customization.
Driving Inventor now, can you share some of these customizations ?
As of late, the pull down to get to a command has gotten worse.
