Using Revit KeyboardShortcuts for your external commands
In the previous post, I showed you how to connect your external commands into Revit, ready to be opened from the Tools -> External Tools menu. But what if you want to make a shortcut to it, lets say for example you want to create "HW" as the shortcut for your Hello World application. All you need to do is go to your Revit program directory, and open KeyboardShortcuts.txt, then scroll down to the Tools section, and add: "HW" menu:"Tools-External Tools-Hello World" Where HW is your shortcut, and Hello World is the ECName you added. Then typing HW in revit will open your command, easy!
