Creating custom shortcut menus

With progeCAD, you can create a custom shortcut menu for commands you want to use frequently. You access the shortcut menu by holding down the Shift key and clicking the right mouse button or by clicking the mouse wheel (if you have one). Using any ASCII text editor, you construct the menu to conform to the Custom shortcut menu syntax and definitions as shown here:

     ID_item_name [item_string]command


Shortcut menu syntax and explanations

Item Explanation
group_name Menu group name.
menu_name Shortcut menu name.
item_name Menu item name.
item_string Menu item string (typically, the command name). The menu item string appears in the shortcut menu. To specify an access key for a command, insert an ampersand (&) immediately before the letter you want to use as the access key. Do not assign the same access key to more than one command.
command Command string. Begin the command string with "^C^C" (e.g., ^C^C_LINE) unless the command is transparent.
help_string Help string. The text in the help string appears in the status bar when you place the cursor over the menu item.
