Anyone know how to reverse engineer a older mapkey from a older release. Say (2001) mapkey in seeing the menu pick by either name or button. I have tryied config option (button_name_in_help) and have not had any luck.


Thx Dan

open the config file where the map key is defined, it is just a text file with all the picks. It may take some reading to figure out exactly what some of the text means, but that is a good place to start. The following is an example of one of my map keys that places a angle and distance chamfer on a selected edge:


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~


mapkey bv @MAPKEY_LABELadd bevel;#FEATURE;#CREATE;#SOLID;#CHAMFER;#EDGE;\


mapkey(continued) #ANG X D;~ Activate `rmb_popup` `Query Sel`;@PAUSE_FOR_SCREEN_PICK;\


mapkey(continued) @PAUSE_FOR_SCREEN_PICK;@PAUSE_FOR_SCREEN_PICK;@PAUSE_FOR_SCR EEN_PICK;\


mapkey(continued) #DONE REFS;~ Activate `Odui_Dlg_01` `preview`;\


mapkey(continued) ~ Activate `Odui_Dlg_01` `okay`;#DONE;


mapkey , #done-return


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
