Creo 4 has a predefined keyboard shortcut for Dimension = D.
However this is set to work in "section" and "layout" modes. I cannot seem to find a way to have it work in drawings to add a dimension. It seems like an obvious thing to do. does anyone know how to get the d shortcut to work in sketches AND drawings?
u must setup yourself mapkey, and you'd better setup biliteral mapkey, not use single letter .or reference to my previous post.
File > Options > Keyboard Shortcuts; Category: All Modes; Show: All Commands; Filter Commands: dimension; Name column expand Drawing; Shortcut column type D in the Dimension row.
To verify the new shortcut, change to Show: Commands with assigned shortcuts. View the modes with D assigned to Dimension.
Click OK to save the change to your creo_parametric_customization.ui file.
