I would love nothing more than to have keyboard shortcuts in Inventor. I despise the fact that Inventor forces the user to access virtually all commands via mouse clicks. Sure i can use 'D' for dimension, 'L' for line, etc., but only a few commands are accessible in this way. Having started on AutoCAD, I grew accustomed to having one hand on the keyboard, one on the mouse. With Inventor, I literally have to sit on one hand. After using Inventor for almost a year now, I draw fairly quickly, but I feel extremely slow and cumbersome having to navigate entirely with the mouse. Am I the only one who feels this way? Anyone have any info about the possibility of this being included in Inventor 8?
