SOLIDWORKS Electrical: Keyboard Shortcuts

There are many SOLIDWORKS Electrical users who try to use the mouse as little as possible. While we can’t totally eliminate the need for a mouse in SOLIDWORKS Electrical, we can add a plethora of keyboard shortcuts, customized to your preference. In SOLIDWORKS Electrical, to add keyboard shortcuts, right click on the Quick Access Toolbar and select “Customize Quick Access Toolbar.” In the resulting window, select the “Keyboard” tab.

You may have more than one shortcut for a single command, but the same shortcut cannot be used for multiple commands.
