Having Mapkey Buttons only show up when in Assembly Mode

Having Mapkey Buttons only show up when in Assembly Mode

I have created a couple mapkeys that I have made buttons for. I want to add them to a toolbar. So far I have Toolbar1 set to show up on the righthand side of my screen and have them added to that bar, but they show up in part and drawing mode, so they take up valuable button space, but don't do anything when in those modes. Is therea way to only have them show up when in assembly mode?


Thanks!
Ted

Summary - Having Mapkey Buttons only show up when in Assembly Mode

I had several suggestions to add the mapkey buttons to an "assembly only" toolbar. Suggestions were the Manikin or Mechanism toolbars. I tried that, but my mapkey buttons still show up even when I'm in part mode. I have sketcher mapkeys that work how I'd like, they're added to the "sketcher tools" toolbar, which only shows up when in sketcher mode. I figured there was an assembly one as well, that would have the "add component" or "create component" buttons would be, but it appears that they are part of the "Engineering Features" tool bar, and those buttons only show up when in assembly mode. So as of now I'm not seeing away to make my assembly mapkey buttons to only show up when in assembly mode. If anyone has any other ideas or suggestions, please pass them on.

Thanks!
