KEYBOARD SHORTCUT KEY

Hi,

 

I am trying to create a trail file to replace part in an assembly, is there any keyboard shortcut key to replace part in pro-e assembly?

 

Because right now you have to select a part to replace it, so i was wondering if there is a keyboard shortcut key for that, that will ask what part needs to be replaced.

 

Thanks

Not sure you are familiar with family tables. If not, you can create a generic assembly that has all the parts available and then instances with the various configurations. Not what you are asking for, but a possible solution.

No keyboard shortcut for this functionality.

 

Trail file is not the best approach for this as trail file will not allow for UI inputs on the fly when run.

 

You could create a mapkey sequence (macro)  that pauses for user interaction and then replaces the component.

 

You can use Pro/Program and user input to select component for replacement.

Really good comments already posted to this thread.

Depending on the situation, may also want to consider interchange assemblies (a bit more complexity, so avoid unless it really makes sense).

Model>operations(overflow menu)>replace

or

You could assign a shortcut to it in File>options>keyboard shortcuts

It is Replace... not Replace

Replace... is generic replace menu. If you select a part before activating the selected part is prefilled as part to replace.

Replace is the replace SELECTED component and it only available when a component is selected

or
Mapkey(I assigned F10):
mapkey $F10 @MAPKEY_LABEL[F10]Replace;\
~ Command `ProCmdReplace`;
