    Hotkey for multiple simutaneous commands

    Using 2017 and I have hotkeys for select link underlay and pinned elements. It doesn't save much time but if I could have one shortcut turn all of them off it could be much quicker than using a mouse. Is there anyway to do this in Revit or do I need something outside of it?

    You can't do this in Revit AFAIK, only individual shortcuts for each.

    I use a Gaming Mouse and a Gaming Keyboard for Revitting as you can set up custom macros. Very handy for repetitive tasks.

    A 'command line' for Revit was joked about but it really would be a great idea to save time doing you Revit thingy's more rapidly. I personally am a great keyboard fan I like so streamline routines my means of scripts. You should not be accepting to buy extra gaming hardware to combine relative simple repatative functions. These Buttons, ribbons actions suck and will never be anyway as fast as your other cad product, sorry Autodesk..

    Gaming hardware is not mandatory, it was simply a suggestion. I've tried various gaming gear over the years but a standard keyboard and mouse works for me so, here's my suggestion https://autohotkey.com

    I choose to use gaming hardware to perform complex repetitive tasks in many pieces of software including microsoft, adobe and autodesk products. After using them, I am sold due to the efficiencies gained. If you want to hit <enter> <ctrl>h F2 <shift><home> <del> <enter> <enter> 150 times, be my guest, I choose to press an additional button with my thumb. Do you type with 2 fingers, or use them all? why not use all the digits on your mouse hand too?

    I completely disagree! when 2010 came out and everyone b1tch3d about it being useless, I did a little dance. Yes you could Use2009UI=1 to turn it back to the old UI, but . . . so many more commands were added to keyboard shortcuts that my speed improved incredibly, and I no longer had to use the ribbon. I'm not sure which 'other' CAD product from Autodesk? I find AutoCAD chokes on the size of the datasets I currently use.

    Instead of trolling, maybe you could add something useful to the conversation.

    If there was anything possitive to contribute I would do so, but i don't see much positive. I guess the bitCghing died after a couple of years, talking to Autodesk is talking to deaf ears. Does Dynamo offer something in this regard? Taking about it.. I have nothing seen *anything* as alternative to buying extra hardware.. Yours sincerely, revitroll.

    The autohotkey seem an idea but I doubt you will be able to get 'deeper' into the ribbons commands

    If it has a keyboard shortcut you can combine as many commands as you want, autohotkey works at the OS level independently of any installed software and can easily be set to be application aware.
    For Revit, WT/ZA is a good one. Set plane/pick plane is another. I have both of these set to a single key stroke. I have tilde (~) button set to act as <enter> so i can tap it with my left hand. I also have my mouse scroll wheel set to zoom in and out faster, reduces RSI. Hell, you can even create your own splash screen menus full of buttons if you want.
    Don't knock it until you've tried it. Or just live in your own sea of negativity.

    Sounds like you should be using a different toolset. I quite enjoy mine. You could start a thread on why you hate revit and your opinions as to why it sucks so bad. That way we wouldn't have to listen to your tripe.

    Then again you could go join the AECOsim/ArchiCAD/Vectorworks forums to find some 'friends' who share your opinion. I'll stay here where the helpful, clever & nice people are.

    Not from where i'm sitting. I see a bunch of like minded revit users discussing how best to navigate our chosen software.
    If your other forums know exactly how things work 100% of the time then congratulations on the back patting party. Must be nice to know everything. Oh wait, now you're redundant because everything has been coded to perfection
    Finally I understand why your user image is a big red cross.
