General Usage Instructions

There is a light bulb icon in the Windows tray which represents this application. When the light bulb is on, it means that the shortcuts mode is activated. This mode automatically deactivates for editing text and typing options for commands.

To switch on and off the shortcuts mode, press shift + caps lock.

To change a shortcut key, right click on the light bulb > customize > choose a key you want to change > type the command or chain of commands and prompts in the white field > save > done.

To change the toggle shortcut, right click on the light bulb > customize > toggle > choose the toggle key combination.

To restore defaults, right click on the light bulb > customize > defaults > yes.

To read statistics, right click on the light bulb > statistics.

Each key can be made persistent which means it will work all the time even when the shortcuts mode is off. This can be useful for making shortcuts for object snaps which can be used when a command is in progress.




The installer that ran when you downloaded this plug-in from Autodesk App Store has already installed the plug-in. You may need to restart the Autodesk product to activate the plug-in.

To uninstall this plug-in, click Control Panel > Programs > Programs and Features (Windows 7/8/8.1/10) or Control Panel > Add or Remove Programs (Windows XP), and uninstall as you would any other application from your system.

Additional Information


Known Issues

The light bulb icon may be not displayed in the Windows tray because Windows can hide it. In order to show the icon in Windows 7, click on Start > Control Panel > Appearance and Personalization > Customize icons on the taskbar > select "Show icon and notifications" for "One Key Shortcuts.exe" > OK.

If keyboard has also a non-English layout, there could be problems with starting commands in the non-English layout. To fix it, right click on the light bulb > fix, next steps are described there.
