Toggle On/Off Zoom Line Thickness

Recommended Posts


Browsing through my workspace editor, I could not find a way to create a key shortcut to toggle on and off zoom line thickness.

Is this possible?

Are you on a PC? If so, you have to know where to place the cursor at the end of the line where a shortcut key would display (if it were there), click and highlight an invisible text entry box, then enter your key choice. Simple, huh?

If you're on a Mac, with the menu command highlighted, just type the key choice and it magically appears where it should.

You can use the VectorScript Plug-in Editor (use of which is a little beyond the scope of this thread) to make any number of toggle commands, any of which can be included in your workspace and given a command key.

I second that! Robert and Andrew thanks for the tips. I've been using the program for ... well a long time and this post got me to write my first plug-in. Yay ... whole new worlds opening up.
