keyboard shortcut to actvate model for Creo 4.0

 

Hi there,

 

I saw some articles on a keyboard shortcut and found a shortcut to activate a model in an assembly with ctrl+A.
However, the command seems to be available for Creo 5.0 or a later version.
I use Creo 4.0 so I would like to know about a shortcut like this.
Do you have any ideas?

Thank you.

Ctrl+A will activate the current window, not a selected part or assembly. If you want to be able to activate a part in an assembly, this command will not work. You would need to create a mapkey.

 

Here is the mapkey we use for this exact scenario:

 

mapkey AW @MAPKEY_LABELACTIVATE SELECTION;\
mapkey(continued) ~ Command `ProCmdMakeActive`;

 

Feel free to change the sequence (in bold and underlined) to whatever works for you.

You can create a mapkey for this command and then add it to the UI. You cannot use CTRL in a mapkey so you must use another key sequence for the name.

 

See page 5 for Creo 4 keyboard shortcuts and page 4 for UI customization.

The mini toolbar should have that function on it.  Just select the part in the window or tree and select the activate button.
