Automatically Bring Pro/E to Edit a Sketch of a Selected Feature


New member
The problem with Pro/E on this is that you have to go through a lot of button clicks just to edit the sketch of a feature. This can be time consuming especially when you just want to change something real quick.

1 - Have a feature already pre-selected

2 - Go to Tools>Mapkeys>New

3 - Name the key and add a description

4 - Move the map key dialogue box to the bottom right of the screen

4 - Press record on map keys and then go to and go to edit > redefine > and click on the buttons you would normally click just to get to the sketch area

5 - When your there just go back to the Mapkeys dialogue box and choose stop, save the mapkey and test it out.
