CADpilot – Key-in Window (MicroStation)

by Lorrie Mattor,

Do you prefer keying in a few shortcuts over clicking on menu items?  Then CADpilot’s Key-In functionality is just for you!

The CADpilot key-in window is used primarily to issue menu and button shortcuts but may also be used to issue MicroStation commands.

To bring up the key-in window, select the “\” (backslash) key.

Note:  For the CADpilot key-in window to load with the “\” key the current View needs to have focus and the Dialog With Focus 

icon is activated.  



Type the command shortcut into the Textbox and then select the Enter button.





CADpilot menu or button shortcuts require the “\” (backslash)

Standard MicroStation commands are executed without the “\” (backslash).
