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 > reference card > choose a key you want to change > type the command or chain of commands and prompts in the field > save.
  • 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 > layout > apply.
  • 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.
  • To remove a current command please type "none" in the field > save.

Additional Information

Known Issues

  • The light bulb icon may not be 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 the 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 > troubleshoot, next steps are described there.
  • When using Dynamic Input in Autodesk® AutoCAD® the AutoComplete function might get in the way. Please try turning off the AutoComplete if you are experiencing issues.
  • Software that automatically fixes typos might have interference as it can try to fix letters of commands for AutoCAD.
