Hi everyone,

Just thought I would share my hotkey scripts since RAM concept has limited capacity to link useful features with keyboard shortcuts.

Install the freeware AutoHotKey and download the attached script file. http://res.cloudinary.com/engineering-com/raw/upload/v1445770148/tips/RAM_Concept_Hotkeys_rapxl9.ahk

Then run the script and the hotkeys will activate, but only when RAM Concept is the active window on your computer. When a hotkey is pushed, the script records your mouses original position, go to the desired button's position, clicks it, then returns your mouse to position it was in when the hotkey was pressed. Simple stuff!

If you want, you can even open up the script and add your own stuff in there. AutoHotKey has very helpful manuals and forums that will help you code in your own features.

Hotkey summary:

q = select
w = move
d = stretch
s = dimension
e = visible objects
r = plot
c = generates mesh then waits 1 second to run a calc partial with ignoring errors selected.

Thanks, do you mind if I share this on the Bentley forums (I think that's where this all started)?

Yeah for sure. That's completely fine.

By the way, it worked well for me with Concept (v6) once I moved my taskbar to the bottom as most people have it. Looks like there is a service in the task bar you can stop to restore normal keyboard functions.
