Technical Support Manager Dan Celia gives us this short tip that could save you lots of time in AutoCAD.
"Redo the Command Alias file to make it one-hand friendly — i.e., eliminate the need to hit keys on opposite ends of the keyboard."
Notes from Cadalyst Tip Patrol: This tip is short — very short — and that's the point. The goal of this tip is to minimize hand movement, which speeds up drawing time. Time is money, and the more quickly you can create your drawings, the sooner you get paid. If the Command Alias file has been edited so that all inputs are entered on one side of the keyboard, then you don't have to move your hand back and forth, nor do you have to remove your hand from the mouse to type with both hands.
It doesn't sound like a lot of time at first, but if it could save you one to two seconds per command, then that could add up. How many commands do you enter each day?
