When designing I constantly switch between Normal View and Simple Wireframe View. Can I create a shortcut key or similar to make this a one-click process?
From what I can see, I can only create shortcuts for pre-determined actions. Am I missing some other options?
In CorelDRAW's regular workspace customization, there are already Commands for those, and you can assign keyboard shortcuts to them.
In this screenshot, I am about to assign "S" as the keyboard shortcut for the Simple Wireframe View command. It shows that "S" is currently assigned to LiveSketch:
After doing that, and also assigning "N" to Normal View, the View menu shows that those shortcuts have been assigned.
I found it easier to assign one character to a macro to "toggle" between views. I use "x"
So easy when you know how! Thanks heaps, I reckon I'll find a lot of used for this newly learned skill. Cheers
I understand how toggling between Normal View and Simple Wireframe View during design can be a bit cumbersome. Unfortunately, in many design software, creating a custom shortcut for toggling between specific views might not be a built-in feature.
However, you can explore some workarounds. Some design software allows users to create custom macros or scripts that can be assigned to shortcuts. Check if your software supports this feature. Alternatively, you might want to explore any third-party plugins or extensions that could provide the functionality you're looking for.
Remember to check the software's official documentation or user forums for any updates or ㅤ additional plugins that might have been developed by the community. Hopefully, you can find a solution that streamlines your workflow. Happy designing!
Use this macro :
Sub ToggleView()' Toggle views between Enhanced and Wireframe' Keyboard Shortcut Tilde'--------------------------------------With ActiveDocument.ActiveWindow.ActiveView If .Type = cdrEnhancedView Then .Type = cdrWireframeView Else .Type = cdrEnhancedView End IfEnd WithEnd Sub
I normally work between Enhanced and Wireframe so have ignored the other View formats for my code.
You will have to use cdrNormalView instead of cdrEnhancedView
I have used Tilde as my preferred shortcut but you can set to whatever you like.
