One Key Shortcuts

One Key Shortcuts

Arcane Tools



This app adds the special shortcuts mode to your keyboard. In this mode one key is one command or chain of commands.
Better than aliases!

• Graphical interface for straightforward customization.
Changing a shortcut key is easier than ever before! Just select a button and type commands like you do in the command line.

• The shortcuts mode automatically deactivates for editing text and typing options for commands.
Deactivating the shortcuts mode becomes a rare necessity once the most used commands are on shortcuts. Shortcuts don't work when editing text or typing commands' prompts.

• Quick and intuitive macros creation.
Just type the commands sequence in the provided field! Despite that waiting for user input is not implemented, there are endless useful macros, such as:
Move dimension text: aidimtextmove{enter}1{enter}
Purge all: -purge{enter}all{enter}{enter}no{enter}
Audit and fix errors: audit{enter}y{enter}
Make the viewport scale "1:50": mspace{enter}zoom{enter}scale{enter}0.02xp{enter}

• Persistent and not persistent keys.
There are keys on keyboard which you rarely use, for instance F1 for help. By assigning to it m2p{enter} you will have a useful object snap at your fingertips all the time. Otherwise you have to shift right click and select "mid between 2 points" which is extra time and eye fatigue. Typing "m2p" is not convenient as well because these 3 letters are far away from each other on keyboard!

• Each key can have up to 4 shortcuts using multiple presses.
For example, push a button once - vertical xline, push it twice - horizontal xline! Or you can have all your blocks library available on shortcuts! First press - insert shower block, second press - hand basin.

• Settings can be exported and imported.
Setup your keys, export settings and you can transfer settings to a home computer for example. Or you can have a different sets of settings and switch between them!

• Default settings are provided with stickers which can be attached to a keyboard.
This will enable immediate usage of shortcuts without studying them and make your keyboard look like a special CAD tool!

  • Must-have app
    Lukas Uher | July 02, 2017 Verified Download (What's this?)

    Just awesome! Extremely boosted my productivity.. If you work with AutoCAD on a daily basis, this is simply a must-have app as it speeds up the routine of activating and switching of different commands on which the entire work in AutoCAD is eventually based on. Definitely much faster work than with the default ACAD way of mapping the shortcuts, and actually this utility can handle much more, as it allows you to map a series of commands to one single key hit.

  • Great app
    Maciej Chowaniec | September 17, 2016 Verified Download (What's this?)

    This is exactly what I was looking for. This app allows you to assign command or chain of commands to your keyboard keys which makes your workflow even faster and more efficient during repetitive exercises. It allows you also to export and save set of keys to file so you can have different sets of keys for different types of workflows - all within easy access.

    Отличный плагин! Научился за 3 недели работать быстрее в разы! Поначалу непривычно, зато потом "летаешь" в автокаде. Автору огромное спасибо.
