Overview of Temporary Override Keys
 
 
 
Bottom of the Page

Temporary override keys are used to temporarily turn on or off drafting settings. For example, holding down the Shift key toggles the current setting of Ortho mode. The following table shows the Object Snap Override: Endpoint temporary override key properties as they appear in the Properties pane.

The creation of a temporary override key does not start with a command from the Commands List pane like a shortcut key does. Instead, you create a new temporary override key like you do a toolbar or ribbon panel, and that is by right-clicking over the Temporary Override Keys node and clicking New Temporary Override Key. Once a temporary override key is created you use the Properties pane to define its key up and key down behavior, and assign it a key combination.

The following table shows the properties of the Object Snap Override : Endpoint temporary override key as they appear in the Properties pane.
