Mouse shortcut for editing attributes of an object

Recommended Posts



I use a Logitech M570 roller ball mouse with Vectorworks which has some customisable buttons. I have customised the buttons for various shortcuts but would like to be able to use it to edit the attributes of objects. I can select an object and right click and access a menu with options like edit  properties etc none allow me to edit the attributes - ie change the fill or line weight. I have to go to the attribute palette. Right click is the same as pressing control then clicking on the object.   I can input  a short cut to open and close the attributes palette but this does not allow me to  edit the attributes of a selected object. 


Does anyone know how I can create a shortcut I can put into the mouse  so I use a mouse button to select and edit the attributes of a object? I suspect I need a VW script to make the shortcut but am not familiar with scripting.

Hi @O Design,

From looking at the list of shortcuts we have I don't believe this is possible as standard.

If it is possible to do this with a script, the best place to ask is in the Vectorscrpit section of the forum:
